Local Planning Scheme No. 7

The City is currently inviting stakeholder and community feedback on the draft Local Planning Scheme No. 7 (draft LPS 7). The draft LPS 7 will replace the existing Town Planning Scheme No. 6 (TPS 6).

The draft LPS 7 implements the City’s Local Planning Strategy, which was developed by the City following extensive stakeholder and community engagement and approved by the WA Planning Commission in February 2021.

The draft LPS 7 proposes changes to the ‘zones’ and ‘densities’ in a number of areas across the City. These changes may affect your property and influence future redevelopment in your local area.

Where can I find all the information I need about draft LPS 7?

Go to Your Say South Perth where you can find a range of information about draft LPS 7, including a helpful video, information sheets, mapping tool, frequently asked questions and much more.
