A local planning scheme sets out a Council’s planning aims for an area that it is trying to achieve, and involves the zoning or classification of land. The Shire of Mingenew’s current Scheme (Scheme No.3) is available for viewing by clicking here.
The Planning and Development Act 2005 requires local governments to periodically review their local planning schemes, and Council resolved at its meeting held on 21 February 2018 to adopt the draft Shire of Mingenew Local Planning Scheme No.4 for advertising.
Scheme No.4 was referred to the Environmental Protection Authority, as is required by the Environmental Protection Act 1986 prior to any advertising of the Scheme, and the EPA advised on 2 July 2018 that Scheme No.4 should not be assessed under Part IV Division 3 of the Environmental Protection Act 1986.
Scheme No.4 was subsequently referred to the Western Australian Planning Commission, as is required by the Planning and Development Act 2005, and the Commission have issued consent to advertise Scheme No.4.
Notice is hereby given that the local government of the Shire of Mingenew has prepared the Shire of Mingenew Local Planning Scheme No.4 for the purpose of:
(a) set out the local government’s planning aims and intentions for the Scheme area;
(b) set aside land as local reserves for public purposes;
