Rockingham: Our City, Our Future
We are preparing a new Local Planning Strategy (LPS) to guide the growth and development of our City for the next 20 years and beyond, as well as protecting what the community values most. A LPS is an important planning document that assists the community in understanding of the future land use and broader direction of the City. The LPS guides the City and government decision makers to make decisions aligned with the City's adopted direction, and the City understands the community plays an important role in participating in the future direction of your community.
The City is committed to enabling residents the opportunity to participate and engage in the consultation process. The LPS will guide the future of planning and development, and builds on the shared vision of Rockingham to be one of the safest, most liveable and sustainable cities in the nation.
Local Planning Strategy Process
Following an initial community consultation stage, the City will analyse feedback provided by the community to ensure the scope of the LPS can adequately respond to community concerns, allowing a LPS that is comprehensive and responsive to community concerns.
You can receive updates on this process by creating your own account on Rock Port, the City’s secure online portal. Once registered, you can opt in to the topic of interest category Local Planning Strategy (LPS) via the My Profile page.
