Better Planning, Better Places
While the Western Australian planning system has supported Perth’s global reputation as a highly liveable city and contributed to the growth of strong regional communities and economies, it has become increasingly more complex, legalistic and unresponsive to changing needs and expectations. It is imperative that our planning system leads and enables well-designed and innovative land-use and development solutions to respond to the challenges of the next phase of the State’s growth.
The Action Plan identifies three goals for reform of the planning system and 19 reform initiatives to achieve the goals. The Department will collaborate with stakeholders and users of the planning system to develop and implement the reform initiatives to deliver the Action Plan.

The Reform Delivery Team is also establishing a stakeholder register. Those who register may be contacted from time to time to provide feedback on reform initiatives as they are developed (for example, online surveys). Both metropolitan and regional stakeholders are encouraged to register.
