Draft Local Planning Strategy

Published on Wednesday, 13 October 2021 at 3:01:00 PM

The Town of East Fremantle has prepared a Draft Local Planning Strategy (Draft LPS 2021) to provide strategic direction for future planning and development within the Town over the next 10 to 15 years. It provides a blueprint for the planning and development of neighbourhoods and commercial (activity) centres and informs the preparation of a new Local Planning Scheme No. 4.

Along with other Local Governments in Western Australia, the Town is required to prepare a LPS to show how the State Government's housing targets as provided in Directions 2031 and Beyond, Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million and the Central Sub-regional Planning Framework can be achieved together with how other State Planning Policy can be applied to the local setting.

The Draft LPS 2021 provides for growth of the Town from 3,090 dwellings (2011 Census) to at least 3,980 by 2050 (+890 dwellings) to meet the State government's infill dwelling target under the Central Sub-Regional Planning Framework (WAPC, 2018). The total estimated current dwellings in 2021 is 3,310. Draft LPS 2021 generally directs growth of the remaining 670+ additional dwellings by 2050 to areas in and near activity centres and urban corridors where higher density developments is already existing or permitted. 

The Draft LPS 2021 provides the framework for implementing the Town's other major strategies through a new Local Planning Scheme.
