PRS Minor amendment 040/57 - Regional Reservations

The Minister for Planning has approved amendment 040/57 (Regional Reservations) to the Peel Region Scheme. 

Notice of approved amendment

This amendment is shown on Western Australian Planning Commission Plans 1.7408/1, 1.7409/1, 1.7410, 1.7411, 1.7412 and 1.7413.

The purpose of the amendment is to reserve sites created and acquired for a public purpose. In this respect, the proposals focus on four main areas:

  • reserving land required and acquired for the provision of necessary infrastructure, such as electricity substations, water supply pump stations and land required for high schools
  • recognising artificial waterways constructed within the Peel region
  • protecting environmental and landscape values within the Peel region
  • recognising the inclusion of land in state forests.

Five of the 34 amendment proposals involve the transfer of small areas of land to the urban or rural zone. These proposals:

  • correct minor anomalies in the Peel Region Scheme; or
  • give effect to an outcome negotiated between the Western Australian Planning Commission and the relevant landowner.
