This policy sets out the principles that will be used by the WAPC in determining applications for the subdivision of rural land.
The policy is consistent with the objectives of State Planning Policy 2.5 - rural planning, which establishes the statewide policy framework for rural land use planning in Western Australia.
This policy supersedes Development Control Policy 3.4: Subdivision of rural land (DC 3.4) (March 2012).
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.
