State Development Assessment Unit

The State Development Assessment Unit supports the Western Australian Planning Commission to assess significant development proposals worth more than $20 million in Perth’s metropolitan area, or more than $5 million in regional areas.

The State Development Assessment Unit supports the Western Australian Planning Commission to assess development proposals of State or regional significance.

The Planning and Development Act 2005 (as amended by the Planning and Development Amendment Act 2020), introduced a new Part 17 that grants the Western Australian Planning Commission temporary decision-making powers to determine proposals over $20 million in metropolitan Perth, and over $5 million in regional areas. 

Proposals must be eligible within these thresholds in order to be determined through this new assessment pathway.

An application will be deemed compliant when the Department has received all relevant information, the appropriate application form and payment of your application fee.
