The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has released Guidance Statement No. 33 Environmental Guidance for Planning and Development. A draft of the guidance statement was released in 2005 for public comment. This final document incorporates comments from the public and necessary changes resulting from the creation of the Department of Environment and Conservation and the Department of Water.

Legislation enabling the environmental assessment by the EPA of town planning schemes and their amendments created the need for environmental guidance for land use planning and development.

Guidance Statement 33 is intended as a resource document for local government, state government agencies, consultants, proponents and the public and its main purposes are:

  • to describe the processes the EPA may apply under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 to land use planning and development in Western Australia, in particular the Environmental Impact Assessment process applied to schemes; and
  • to provide information and advice on a range of environmental issues and their protection and management.
