Local Planning Strategy Review


Local Planning Strategy Review – Discussion Paper

The Town of Cottesloe has a legislative responsibility to provide an efficient and effective land use planning system and to promote the sustainable use and development of land in the Cottesloe area. A Local Planning Scheme accompanied by a Local Planning Strategy (LPS) is designed to achieve this. The Town’s existing LPS was prepared more than ten years ago and a review is now necessary.

A Local Planning Strategy is direction setting document that establishes the justification for any future changes or amendments to its Local Planning Scheme. It is therefore vital to contribute to at this critical stage of the process in order to ensure that the revised Local Planning Strategy and ultimately the Local Planning Scheme reflect the interests of the community.

At the November Council Meeting, Town of Cottesloe Councillors unanimously approved the Town of Cottesloe’s LPS Review Discussion Paper for community comment as the first stage in the review process.

The LPS Review Discussion Paper has been developed to open up a dialogue with our community regarding the opportunities and challenges that the review presents. The Town is now seeking feedback on the considerations and opportunities presented within the LPS Discussion Paper.
