Following substantial completion of urban renewal projects in the Central Perth and Subiaco redevelopment areas, the State Government is proposing to return planning control for these areas from DevelopmentWA (formerly the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority) to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) and the respective local governments – being the cities of Perth, Subiaco and Vincent and the Town of Cambridge.
For this to occur, the WAPC has initiated amendments to the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS).
The proposed amendments seek to re-establish various zones and reservations within the MRS to allow the transfer of planning control back to the WAPC and the respective local government via a process known as ‘normalisation’.
The amendments are administrative in nature and the proposed zones and reservations are consistent with existing land uses and the associated statutory planning framework. As such, the current use and development of properties and surrounding land in the amendment areas will not change.

Submissions close 5pm, Friday 28 February 2020. Late submissions will not be considered.
The WAPC will consider all submissions before making a recommendation to the Minister for Planning, who will then make a final decision on the proposed amendment.
