Subdivision

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

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

The City is unable to provide advice on project feasibility, or offer a design service, and suggests landowners seek professional advice.

Provisions relating to a property’s subdivision potential exist in the R-Codes and the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS 3).

More information on the subdivision process can be viewed on the WAPC website.
