Preparing & lodging a Structure Plan or an application to amend an approved Structure Plan

Structure Plans

A Structure Plan is a document consisting of text and maps which identifies how land is intended to be developed or is being developed. It provides a broad framework to guide Council when it considers subdivision and development proposals. In addition to illustrating details such as road configuration and the location of retail and community facilities such as shops, schools and public open space, a Structure Plan can also show details including housing density, land use classifications and zones.

Preparing a Structure Plan

The City of Wanneroo recommends that you engage a Planning Consultant to prepare the Structure Plan and supporting documentation.  Please refer to the Western Australian Planning Commission's Structure Plan Framework for guidelines on the required material and information to be submitted.

Prior to lodging a Structure Plan it is recommended that you arrange a pre-lodgement meeting with the City to discuss the proposal and provide an opportunity to resolve any major issues prior to lodgement. You can then lodge your Structure Plan online.
