These guidelines describe the basis for lifting of urban deferment and apply to land subject to region schemes and zoned urban deferred under such schemes.
Under clause 27 of the Metropolitan Region Scheme and clause 13 of the Peel Region Scheme and Greater Bunbury Region Scheme, land included within the urban deferred zone may be transferred to the urban zone by resolution of the WAPC, notified in the Government Gazette.
These guidelines supersede the WAPC Guidelines for the Lifting of Urban Deferment (November 2007).
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.
