Local Planning Scheme 8 is proposed to replace the existing Town Planning Scheme 7. The changes are predominantly to update the Scheme to align with the Planning and Development Regulations 2015, ensure consistency with the Greater Bunbury Region Scheme and to reflect existing land use. The new scheme proposes a number of changes including new zones, rezonings, text updates, scheme provision amendments, additional uses to reflect actual land uses and the introduction of several Special Control Areas.
Removal of Additional Use 52 from the 'Rural Residential' zoned Lot 30 Millbrook Road,
Yallingup and introduction of Special Provision 71 to a portion of Lot 30 Millbrook Road
(proposed Lot 8 Millbrook Road) to include a number of additional 'A' uses.
The Shire of Augusta-Margaret River proposes to add provisions to Schedule 7 of its scheme text to allow for the subdivision of 2 adjacent Rural Residential zoned lots into 1 ha lots. At present the minimum lot size permitted is 3 ha.
The Western Australian Planning Commission proposes to rezone approximately 41 ha of
land from the Private Recreation zone and Road Reserve to Urban. Rezoning will facilitate adoption of a local structure plan to guide development at the Bunbury Turf Club.
Amendment 42 proposes to amend the scheme text by inserting a new clause within Part 5 -
Special Control Area, for the creation of the Western Ringtail Possum Habitat Protection Area to envelop residential areas in the Dunsborough and Busselton townships.
Amendment 4 proposes to recode Lots 44-48 Castle Street, Bunbury from R20/40 to R20/R60 and to insert Additional Site and Development Requirements into Schedule 3 of the Scheme.
Amendment 38 proposes to include an Additional Use (A82) to allow for commercial, tourism
based development on the non-vegetated portions of Lot 61 (400) Metricup Road, Metricup.
The City of Bunbury has initiated Amendment 1 to correct minor formatting and
typographical errors identified in the Scheme Text and modify the Scheme Map to correct a minor mapping anomaly.
Rezone from Rural Residential and Agriculture to Urban Development zone.
