The Position Statement sets out how container deposit scheme infrastructure should be considered and assessed in the Western Australian planning system.
This Position Statement provides guidance to both proponents and decision-makers on the planning considerations which apply to infrastructure to support Western Australia’s container deposit scheme – Containers for Change.
It explains the types of container deposit scheme infrastructure and the Western Australian Planning Commission’s expectations for the assessment of proposals, including location and siting.
A model local planning policy – providing an exemption from the requirement to obtain development approval for some container deposit scheme infrastructure proposals – is provided, and may be adopted at the discretion of local government.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
