FAQs

What is a Local Planning Policy?

The Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 enable Local Governments to prepare Local Planning Policies (LPPs) that may address strategic or operational considerations on planning matters.

LPP1.20 Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan – Density and Bonus Provisions intends to provide additional clarity on the intended outcomes of the CBACP with respect to increased densities and Bonus Provisions.

Importantly, LPPs are required to; uphold sound planning principles; achieve consistency with higher order planning instruments (in this instance the City’s Local Planning Scheme and the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan); and, maintain consistency with State Planning Policies.

A LPP that does not meet these requirements may be deemed to be not properly prepared and is likely to be given little or no regard in the decision making process.

I have been consulted on a policy of this nature before. Why is the City advertising the policy again?

In March 2019 Council explored the opportunity to develop a Local Planning Policy to provide additional clarity to the process of awarding bonus height under the Bonus Provisions of the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan. Local Planning Policy 1.18 – Bonus Building Height Provisions was subsequently prepared by City Officers and advertised for public comment in mid-2019. Following public advertising, in August 2019 Council resolved not to proceed with the Policy.  

In December 2019 Council resolved to engage the services of an external planning consultant to prepare a new draft Local Planning Policy of the same nature. The Policy prepared by the consultant was considered by Council at the October 2020 Ordinary Meeting of Council where Council resolved to not proceed with advertising the policy, instead resolving to advertise an alternative Policy prepared by the project's Stakeholder Working Group.

The Policy prepared by members of the Stakeholder Working Group, LPP1.20 – Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan – Density and Bonus Provisions is the subject of this engagement.

Who is the Stakeholder Working Group?

The Stakeholder Working Group (SWG) was formed to assist an external planning consultant prepare a draft Local Planning Policy relating to Bonus Building Heights in the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP).

The SWG membership was formed via invitation of individuals who participated in the engagement process of the draft Local Planning Policy previously advertised. The group included residents within the CBACP area as well as industry professionals such as architects and planning consultants who operate within the area.

During the preparation of the Local Planning Policy by the projects consultant, a select group of the SWG members prepared an alternative policy for the Council’s consideration.

The policy prepared by the Stakeholder Working Group, LPP1.20 – Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan – Density and Bonus Provisions is the subject of this engagement.

Who are we engaging with and why?

We are engaging with the community via Melville Talks on the City of Melville website, via social media and mailing residents and landowners within the Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan area for feedback on the proposed local planning policy.

The policy is required to be advertised in accordance with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 and the City’s Local Planning Policy 1.1 Planning Processes and Decision Making
