The Tourism planning guidelines have been produced in partnership with Tourism WA and released on 10 June 2014.
The intent of the guidelines is to assist with the development of the tourism component of a local planning strategy. A tourism component of a local planning strategy provides local governments with a rationale for determining the future land allocation, planning controls and infrastructure needs for tourism, based on sound planning principles. Where a local tourism planning strategy has been previously prepared by a local government, a summary of the key findings and recommendations should be incorporated into the local planning strategy as per these guidelines.
The objectives of the guidelines are to:
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.
