The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is responsible for approving all subdivision applications in our state.  A property’s subdivision potential depends on its zoning, and if zoned Residential its density coding (e.g. R12.5).

Details on a property’s zoning and density coding can be obtained from the City’s online Mapping.

Provisions relating to a property’s subdivision potential exist in the City’s TPS 2 and the WAPC’s State Planning Policy 3.1 – Residential Design Codes (R-Codes).
