Planning Strategies

This City is working on a number of strategic planning projects to guide development throughout the City into the future.

The projects are being developed based on community aspirations and in response to the City's expected growth under the State Government's strategic planning document Perth and Peel@3.5 Million.

Extensive community engagement will occur through the development of these strategies prior to their adoption by Council.

Local Planning Strategy

A Local Planning Strategy provides the overarching guidance for managing population growth and the development of a local government over a 10 to 15 year time frame. 

Visit the Local Planning Strategy page for further information.

Local Housing Strategy

The Draft Local Housing Strategy aims to encourage, facilitate and emphasise housing development within the City. The Local Housing Strategy will be finalised as part of the Local Planning Strategy.

Local Commercial Strategy

Local Commercial Strategies are required by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) as an important component of any review of a local government Town Planning Scheme. Alternatively the WAPC may require the preparation of a Local Commercial Strategy where the development of a major commercial project, which is outside the scope of any existing adopted strategies or the Town Planning Scheme, is proposed.

The City’s current Local Commercial Strategy was adopted by Council in 2004.

Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan

The precinct surrounding the Canning Bridge will be revitalised with a mix of office, retail, residential, recreational and cultural uses, maximising opportunities offered by its unique ‘transport hub’ location.

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) has been adopted by the City of South Perth and will guide development in the precinct surrounding the Canning Bridge Station, on both sides of the Canning Bridge. The precinct extends for an 800 metre radius around the station, representing a ten-minute walk or a two-minute cycling distance.
