Local Planning Strategy

Consultation has concluded


How will the City of Nedlands look in the future? The new Local Planning Strategy will shape our City for the next 10-15 years.

A Local Planning Strategy is the document that helps the City plan for land use and the future urban development of our area. This builds upon the Vision from the City’s Strategic Community Plan (Nedlands 2023).

The City produced a Local Planning Strategy and this has now been endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission.

The Local Planning Strategy establishes key principles that will be used in considering land use and development in response to changes in population, housing, employment, transport, community facilities and infrastructure.

The development of the Local Planning Strategy is the first stage in a broader process to review the City’s current Town Planning Scheme No. 2. The Strategy provides the intentions that the City will pursue when developing a new Local Planning Scheme No. 3 and subsequent Local Planning Policies and Local Development Plans.

If you have any questions about the Local Planning Strategy please contact the Planning Team via email council@nedlands.wa.gov.au or by calling (08) 9273 3500
