Liveable neighbourhoods

Liveable Neighbourhoods is a Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) operational policy that guides the structure planning and subdivision for greenfield and large brownfield (urban infill) sites.

In general, Liveable Neighbourhoods replaces the current WAPC development control policies. Where such policies conflict with Liveable Neighbourhoods, Liveable Neighbourhoods will prevail unless an applicant can demonstrate why it cannot or should not apply.

The WAPC initiated a review of Liveable Neighbourhoods in 2015.  This review will be considered and finalised as part of the Design WA project.
