At its meeting held on the 22 June 2021, Council resolved to adopt Draft Local Planning Policy No. 3 – Non Residential Uses within Residential Zones for the purposes of advertising.


The policy will consolidate three existing local planning policies relating to Medical Centres, Child Care Premises and Home Based Businesses and incorporate provisions from Town Planning Scheme No 3 relating to Commercial Vehicle Parking.


This review of existing local planning policies has been triggered by recent changes to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 and the anticipated finalisation of the City’s Local Planning Scheme No 12. The definitions and exemptions within proposed LPP3 reflect these changes to the planning framework.


Local planning policies sit below the local planning scheme and provide guidance for development within the City. The proposed policy will provide a framework for the assessment and approval of various non-residential land uses within residential zones, including design criteria for new development.


Submissions on the policy can be lodged in writing to the City of Mandurah by Friday 13 August 2021 via email to planning@mandurah.wa.gov.au.
