Structure plans

Structure Plan location map

The locations of Structure Plans approved within the city are shown on the map below.

District Structure Plans

Council has adopted District Structure Plans over large areas which are identified for future urban development and held in multiple ownership.  The purpose of a District Structure Plan is to ensure that coordinated development occurs across the landholdings by identifying infrastructure such as main roads, commercial nodes and regional open space.

Local Structure Plans

All land zoned 'development' under the Town Planning Scheme is required to be supported by a (local) structure plan.  The purpose of the Local Structure Plan is to identify the pattern of development by depicting specific matters such as the location of all roads, residential densities, public reserves, commercial land and pedestrian/cycle networks.

Local Structure Plans are advertised for comment prior to adoption and require the approval of the Council and the Western Australian Planning Commission.

Detailed plans of subdivisions are required to be in accordance with the prevailing adopted Local Structure Plan.

Copies of all adopted local structure plans are set out below.

Neighbourhood Centre Indicative Development Guide Plans

Integrated Development Guide Plans (IDGPs) and Detailed Area Plans (DAPs) have been prepared to guide the development for a number of Neighbourhood Centre Precincts within Rockingham's new growth areas. These plans have statutory effect similar to a Local Structure Plan and outline both the pattern of development and intended built form.

Activity Centre Structure Plans

Activity Centre Structure Plans are prepared in accordance with the Western Australian Planning Commission's State Planning Policy No.4.2 - Activity Centres for Perth and Peel (SPP 4.2).

The main purpose of SPP 4.2 is to specify broad planning requirements for the planning and development of new Activity Centres and the redevelopment and renewal of existing centres in Perth and Peel. It is mainly concerned with the distribution, function, broad land use and urban design criteria of Activity Centres, and with coordinating their land use and infrastructure planning.

Other purposes of SPP 4.2 include the integration of Activity Centres with public transport; ensuring they contain a range of activities to promote community benefits through infrastructure efficiency and economic benefits of business clusters; and lower transport energy use and associated carbon emissions.

District Town Centre Indicative Development Guide Plans

Integrated Development Guide Plans (IDGPs) are prepared to guide the development of 'Main Street' District Town Centres. These plans have statutory effect similar to a Local Structure Plan and outline both the pattern of development and intended built form. For each District Town Centre, the City has adopted a corresponding Local Planning Policy that provides specific details to guide development.
