The Shire of Broome proposes to replace its existing planning scheme with an updated scheme which is in line with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations 2015. This includes updating Table 3 Zoning Table to include new use classes including ‘Waste disposal facility’ and ‘Waste storage facility’.
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.
