Its intent is to reduce instances where the City receives a development application for structures that have no detrimental impact on the amenity of the locality. The policy elaborates on developments exempt under the Residential Design Codes of Western Australia (R-Codes).

    It includes provisions relating to the following developments:

    • Animal enclosures
    • Garden ornaments
    • Screen walls and fencing
    • External fixtures – solar panels
    • External fixtures – satellite dishes
    • Flagpoles and flags
    • Fill and retaining
    • Permanent outdoor cooking facilities
    • Gatehouses
    • Shade sails
    • Street walls, piers and fences
    • Non-residential external building alterations
    • Pool pump sheds
    • Carports
    • Cubby houses


    Please visit the City's website to view the report (Item PD62.18, page 61 of the PDF) and Minutes (PD62.18 pg 31 of the PDF) in relation to this proposal.
