Western Australia's land use planning system coordinates planning, land use and development through the review, approval and monitoring of planning schemes, policies, strategies, structure plans and subdivision and development applications.

Land use planning policy and decision-making are largely the responsibility of the Western Australian Planning Commission, the Department of Planning, local governments and redevelopment authorities.

Planning in Western Australia takes into account community, economic, environmental, infrastructure and regional development principles as set out in State planning policy No 1: State Planning Framework.

Our role

The Department of Parks and Wildlife has an important role in advising land use planning decision makers on environmental planning issues relating to nature conservation and Parks and Wildlife managed areas. This role is undertaken primarily through the department's regional offices (see the list of regional contacts below).

Guidance on protecting the environment during planning and development is set out in the Environmental Protection Authority’s Guidance Statement No. 33 Environmental Guidance for Planning and Development.
