Proposed draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3

The City of Nedlands has prepared draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS 3), which is proposed to replace the City’s existing Town Planning Scheme No. 2, gazetted in 1985.

Your property may be affected by draft LPS 3

The City encourages you to go to Your Voice Nedlands to view a copy of the scheme and search for your property using the interactive mapping.

Draft LPS 3 provides the land use and development control provisions to implement some of the concepts developed in the Local Planning Strategy. The City bases planning decisions on the provisions and controls within its Local Planning Scheme.

Consultation now closed

Draft Local Planning Scheme No. 3 was advertised to the community from the beginning of December 2017 until the end of March 2018.

More than 1,000 submissions were received as part of the consultation process. The City is now considering each submission and will begin discussions with Council on the key issues raised.

Ultimately, a report will be presented to Council which may recommend changes to the scheme, based on the issues raised in the submissions. Council’s resolution, along with the schedule of submissions, will be forwarded to the WA Planning Commission and Minister for Planning for final consideration.
