The City of Cockburn proposes to rezone three development areas which form part of the
Australian Marine Complex in Henderson from Special Use 2 and Special Use 22 to Strategic Industry. The development areas were introduced to facilitate and control development of the Australian Marine Complex (AMC) which has now largely been completed.
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.
