The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) has sought public comment on proposed changes to State Planning Policy 2.4 Basic Raw Materials (SPP 2.4) and associated guidelines.
A key objective of SPP 2.4 is to enable the responsible extraction of basic raw materials used in building and development while ensuring the protection of people and the environment.
In partnership with the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and following interagency and public consultation for the Perth and Peel Regions, associated mapping has also been developed and is available for comment.
Submissions closed at 5pm Friday 25 January 2019.
