Karnup District Structure Plan

City of Rockingham


In 2018 the State Government released the Perth and Peel @ 3.5 Million strategy and the associated South Metropolitan Peel Sub-regional Planning Framework ('Planning Framework').

The Planning Framework designated Karnup as 'Urban Expansion Area' to serve as a key urban growth corridor for the sub-region and requires the City to prepare a District Structure Plan, for the approval of the State Government, in advance of rezoning and subdivision within the area.

A District Structure Plan is a high level strategic plan which will help guide where future land uses like housing, shops and open space are located. The process of preparing the District Structure Plan is quite long and is expected to take up to three years.

Get involved

Following advice from the Western Australian Planning Commission and Council’s support at its Ordinary Council meeting held on 28 May 2024, the Karnup District Structure Plan (KDSP) project will now enter the stakeholder engagement, visioning and design phase.

We invite you to participate in this phase which will guide zoning, land use, and development within Karnup. Feedback received during this engagement process will be used to guide the locations for future housing, shops, schools, and open spaces. We will be holding a series of workshops, facilitated by City Planners and Project Team experts. This is your opportunity to share your insights and ideas, and influence the future development of Karnup.
