State planning policies provide the highest level of planning policy control and guidance in Western Australia. Prepared under Part 3 of the Planning and Development Act 2005.
State Planning Policy 1 State Planning Framework Policy (SPP 1) brings together existing State and regional policies, strategies, plans and guidelines within a central State Planning Framework. It sets the context for decision-making on land use and development in Western Australia.
SPP 1 provides a comprehensive list of all WA Planning Commission (WAPC) policies and outlines how they relate to each other to guide integrated decision-making across all levels of planning. It does not introduce new policies.
SPP 1 was first gazetted on 22 December 1998. The current version (Variation 3) was gazetted in November 2017.
