Draft policy Planning for Localities along the Swan Canning development control area and nine associated locality plans are now open for public comment.

The policy and locality plans provide specific locality-based guidance for development (including use of the land and water) around the Swan Canning development control area
 
The objectives of the policy and plans are to ensure that land use, development and other permitted works, acts and activities in or affecting the Swan Canning development control area:
 
  • maintain and enhance the ecological health, community benefits and amenity of the Swan Canning river system; and
  • achieve consistent and integrated planning, decision making and management outcomes in relation to the river system.
The locality plans have been developed for sections along the Swan Canning river system as depicted below in Figure 1.
 
The Perth Water locality is addressed through the already endorsed Perth Water Buneenboro Locality Plan
 
The policy and locality plans will become part of the suite of Swan Canning development control area policies.
