The Development Control Area includes the waters of the Swan and Canning rivers and adjoining parks and recreation reserves.

It extends upstream from the Fremantle Traffic Bridge to Moondyne Brook on the Avon River, to the Lower Diversion Dam on the Helena River, along Southern River to the Allen Road crossing and along the Canning River to its confluence with Stinton Creek.

The process for development approvals in and around the rivers depends on the location of the proposed development with respect to the Development Control Area. More information is available in the Development Control Procedures, which can be downloaded from the Making an application page


The Riverpark consists of the waterways and adjacent public land of the Swan, Canning, Helena and Southern rivers. No private property is included in the Riverpark.
