Amendments to Local Planning Schemes and Plans

Local governments are responsible for planning their local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development. They do this by preparing local planning schemes and strategies.

Local planning schemes set out the way land is to be used and developed, classify areas for land use and include provisions to coordinate infrastructure and development within the local government area.

    The City of Kalamunda has initiated the above Local Planning Scheme No. 3 Amendment 101 for the purpose of public advertising. Amendment No. 101 relates to the introduction of a Development Contribution Area (DCA) over the Kalamunda Wedge of the Maddington Kenwick Strategic Employment Area (MKSEA).

    • The area has historically been used for rural and rural lifestyle land uses. The future industrial development of the area will generate the need for the provision of new infrastructure and upgrades to existing infrastructure. Given the fragmented nature of land ownership, and the need to achieve a coordinated approach to the delivery of infrastructure, a Development Contribution Plan (DCP) is considered necessary to facilitate infrastructure provision in an equitable manner. A DCA is required to be introduced into the Scheme to enable a DCP to be prepared. For this reason, each of the local governments are proposing to introduce a DCA over the area.

    A DCP is also known as an ‘infrastructure levy’, established to provide for infrastructure construction and upgrades in an area, where the subdivision or development of land creates additional demand for infrastructure such as roads or drainage requirements. DCPs effectively operate on a ‘user pays’ basis, with contributions payable at the time of subdivision or development, typically on a ‘per-lot’ or ‘per square metre’ basis.
