Amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations 2015

Proposed regulatory amendment to support implementation of the Container Deposit Scheme.

Container Deposit Scheme – infrastructure and planning

The State Government is establishing a Container Deposit Scheme for Western Australia to encourage greater recycling of beverage containers.

While primarily an Environment, Water and Regulation portfolio initiative, there are a number of planning considerations associated with the development of the scheme and its implementation.

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) released a position statement which sets out how container deposit scheme infrastructure should be considered and assessed within the State’s planning system.

More recently, to assist with the rollout of associated infrastructure for container refund points, amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 are being proposed.

Submissons closed 5pm Friday 7 February 2020.
