Consultation has concluded

The City of Kalamunda undertook community consultation to develop its Environmental Land Use Planning Strategy (ELUPS) to meet the future needs of the local natural environment and community, and promote sustainable planning practices which will be complementary to the existing natural environment.

The Environmental Land Use Planning Strategy (ELUPS) will form a component - one of seven sub-strategies that will inform the City’s new Local Planning Strategy - which was progressed throughout 2019 and into 2020. The ELUPS' objectives are to provide strategic direction for land use planning and development in relation to the environment. The ELUPS was adopted by Council for advertising on 25 September 2018.

Advertising of the draft ELUPS occurred from November 2018 to the end of February 2019 (including an extension for an additional 14 days over the Christmas period in accordance with Local Planning Policy P-DEV 45 - Public Advertising of Planning Proposals). Advertising consisted of an online survey, newspaper advertisements, a pop-up information stall at Kalamunda Central, and social media promotions.

A total of 25 submissions were received, nine (9) of which were received via the online survey, with 16 additional submissions received via hard copy or email. A total of 16 of the submissions were from residents, three (3) from local community groups, four (4) from government agencies and two (2) from local government.

Outcome
The results of this engagement and the draft Strategy was presented to Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 23 July 2019. Council resolved to adopt the ELUPS, subject to modications. Another outcome for 2020 will be the development of the Significant Tree policy which will provide a reference guide for the City to recognise a valuable natural resource, and to establish long-term plans for the conservation, enhancement, maintenance and integration of trees of significance in the City’s local environment.

    The City of Kalamunda is developing its Environmental Land Use Planning Strategy (ELUPS) to meet the future needs of the local natural environment and community, and promote sustainable planning practices which will be complementary to the existing natural environment.

    The purpose of the Strategy will be to:

    • Identify the environmental factors that will influence future planning in the City.
    • Identify how these factors can be appropriately addressed during the assessment of development and subdivision applications
    • Develop strategic actions to provide guidance on how we can improve environmental outcomes through our statutory and strategic planning processes.

    The ELUPS will form one part of the proposed new Local Planning Strategy being developed in 2019, focusing on relevant environmental planning considerations. A Local Planning Strategy should be reviewed and prepared by a local government every five years.

    Your feedback will help shape the development of ELUPS, as well as ensure that your aspirations for our growing community are heard.

    Feedback can be provided via our online feedback form, or written submissions can be submitted:
