The City of Mandurah have prepared the City’s new Local Planning Strategy and Local Planning Scheme 12 (Scheme 12), which the Western Australian Planning Commission have endorsed for advertising. This draft Strategy and Scheme will replace the current Town Planning Scheme No 3.

Scheme 12 is the culmination of several years work and provides an up to date ‘rule book’ for managing development within the City.

The Scheme is supported by a draft Local Planning Strategy which provides an overarching plan for the City and its future development. Key aims of the strategy include:

  • accommodating projected increases in population through increasing the density and diversity of housing in and around activity centres;
  • creating a vibrant city centre by focusing further retail and commercial activity within central Mandurah, that along with targeted economic development interventions will foster the development of a mature local economy;
  • managing the City’s sensitive environments in a sustainable manner that will ensure development is sympathetic to the environmental values of the region;
  • the protection of key tourism sites and precincts to ensure an ongoing tourism function in Mandurah, as well as providing for flexibility to allow for tourism uses within various locations where appropriate.

The context of this local planning strategy is set out in the supporting parts to the Strategy, such as:
Activity Centres
Urban Form and Housing
Tourism Planning
Biodiversity
• Social Infrastructure
Southern Rural Structure Plan
These strategies form the background to this Local Planning Strategy.

The public are invited to have their say by submitting any comments in writing to the City of Mandurah by Friday 28 February 2020. City officers are happy to answer any general or site specific questions regarding the new Scheme and Strategy and can be contacted by emailing planning@mandurah.wa.gov.au or phoning 9550 3748.

    What are the CURRENT Tree Preservation Areas ( pre LPS 12 ) in the City of Mandurah. A CURRENT map showing addresses would be useful showing these areas within each Suburb as they are referred to on the City of Mandurah website however no information is available as to WHERE they are exactly. This information is necessary so as to make an informed comment prior to the close of submissions in relation to trees. Many thanks

    Under the current Town Planning Scheme No. 3, tree preservation provisions apply to:

    • All land within 120 m of the high water mark of a watercourse or the boundary of riparian vegetation for non-tidal affected wetlands;
    • land with a slope in excess of 10 per cent;
    • land that is zoned Residential with a density coding of R2, R2.5 or R5;
    • all other zoned land with a lot area greater than 4000m2;
    • land designated as a tree preservation area on an outline development plan; or
    • where a tree or bushland is registered or nominated for registration on the City's 'Significant Tree Register'.

    Lots subject to the current Tree Preservation provisions can be viewed on the City's online mapping tool by turning on the tree preservation layer, which can be accessed at the following link http://gis.mandurah.wa.gov.au/Intramaps90/?_ga=2.74621394.1563166713.1578469747-1355586431.1578290762.
