Local Development Plans

A Local Development Plan (formerly known as a Detailed Area Plan or Detailed Site Plan) is a mechanism used to coordinate and assist in achieving better built form outcomes by linking lot design to future development. It can facilitate the design and coordination of development upon small and highly constrained lots and supplement development standards contained in Local Planning Schemes and the Residential Design Codes (R-Codes).

At the local government’s discretion, a Local Development Plan can also streamline the development approval process, with compliant development exempt from the requirement to obtain development approval.

Please refer to the WA Planning Commission's Local Development Framework document to obtain more information about Local Development Plans.
