MRS Minor amendment 1357/57 Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority Normalisation Midland

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on a proposal to amend the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) for land in the local government area of Swan.

The purpose of this amendment is to re-establish the various zones and reservations in the central districts of the MRS to zone and reserve portions of the land currently under the planning control of Development WA (formerly the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority), pursuant to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority Act 2011.

Proposals within the amendment will facilitate the future ‘normalisation’ of the land, when planning control is transferred from Development WA to the WAPC and the relevant local government, and is principally an administrative process.  The proposed zones and reservations are consistent with the existing land uses and Development WA’s statutory planning framework for the land.

The WAPC certifies that, in its opinion, the proposed amendment does not constitute a substantial alteration to the MRS.
