Structure Plan - Process and Checklist 



A Structure Plan is to be prepared and approved prior to subdivision or development of land within Development Areas as identified within the City's Town Planning Scheme, or where required by the WA Planning Commission.  The City's online mapping can be used to locate Development Areas using the zoning module.

Additional provisions may also apply to each Development Area as described in Schedule 11 of Town Planning Scheme No 3.

Schedule 2, Part 4 of the deemed provisions in the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 outline the requirements and procedures to follow when preparing a Structure Plan. 

The Western Australian Planning Commissions ("WAPC") Structure Plan Framework clarify the different types of structure plans and elaborates on the information which is required to be submitted. This includes a 'template' which applicants should use. They also provide a flowchart of the process.

Appropriate expertise should be engaged to prepare a structure plan and all supporting information and there should be suitable meetings and discussion held with the City's Strategic Planning Department prior to lodgment.

The suite of studies required to support and inform a Structure Plan are comprehensive, covering the full spectrum of the economic, social and environmental impacts of development.
