Out for comment revised Policy P317 - Licensed Premises

Public Notice 20 November 2017

The City has revised Policy P317 and it is now available for comment.

Policy P317 provides guidelines for the assessment of licensed premises. The Policy has been modified to: 

  • Delete the land use definitions and excerpt of the land use permissibility table from Town Planning Scheme No. 6, and instead reference the relevant clauses in the Scheme.
  • Update terminology to be consistent with the Scheme and Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations, 2015.
  • Amend the criteria relating to design and location to ensure that the permissibility of a Liquor Store (Large) in a particular zone is considered in the determination of applications involving a ‘Tavern’ or ‘Hotel’ that will display and sell packaged liquor from a net lettable area of 300 square metres or more.


To view revised Policy P317 and to make a comment online, visit the City’s Your Say South Perth community engagement portal at yoursay.southperth.wa.gov.au.

Hard copies of the revised policy are available to view during business hours at the Civic Centre and City’s libraries.

Written submissions should be addressed to: Chief Executive Officer, City of South Perth Civic Centre, Cnr Sandgate St & South Tce, SOUTH PERTH, WA 6151 or emailed to feedback@southperth.wa.gov.au

Submissions will be received until 5pm, Tuesday 12 December 2017.
