Proposed Amendments to Rural Land Strategy


Our Planning Policy No.3.1.1 - Rural Land Strategy was adopted by the Council in 2003 to provide the basis for land use planning in the rural areas of the City of Rockingham and in particular, to guide the assessment of proposals to rezone, subdivide and develop rural land in the City. Since its adoption, it has been subject to several minor amendments.

The release of the South Metropolitan Peel Sub-Regional Planning Framework (Western Australian Planning Commission, 2018) has necessitated a comprehensive review of Planning Policy No.3.1.1 to ensure it aligns with the State Government's strategic direction.

The review process recommended that Planning Policy No.3.1.1 be amended to include revised policy areas, strategic objectives, policy measures and performance standards.

Details of the proposed amendments to Planning Policy No.3.1.1 and related documents can be viewed below, and at our Administration Building at Civic Boulevard, Rockingham between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
