Yanchep Lagoon Area Master Plan
Public comment period closed
A draft Master Plan for the Yanchep Lagoon has been prepared to guide future development, activities and amenities in the area as a way to provide vital services and community activities for local residents and visitors to the area.
The draft Master Plan can be accessed in the ‘Documents’ section below.
The Plan was developed following extensive community engagement late in 2018, which included an online engagement period, followed by a three-day Planning and Design Forum involving community and stakeholder representatives and a Community Open House on 17 December 2018.
Council endorsed the draft Master Plan for comment at its 5 March 2019 meeting. The six-week public comment period closed on Friday, 19 April 2019.
Community engagement process
To develop the Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan, more than 70 people - including local community representatives - participated in the Yanchep Lagoon Planning & Design Forum, held in Yanchep on 28-29 November 2018.
The Forum was open to a representative sample of stakeholders and community members who were personally involved in helping to shape the future of the Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan. Further sessions were held with City staff and Elected Members on 30 November and 1 December 2018.
A Community Open House was held on Monday, 17 December to present the outcomes of the Forum at Splendid Park, (Yanchep Active Open Space), Marmion Avenue, Yanchep.
In addition to the online form, you are invited to share your thoughts on the draft Master Plan with the public through the Submit Your Comments section below.

The ideas and feedback captured during the digital engagement phase can still be viewed via our interactive online map.
The online survey results are now also available in the documents section on this page, along with the Draft vision and Master Plan. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the project so far and those who represented the community in the Planning Design Forum.
Further opportunity to have a say
Consultation is now open on the The Yanchep Two Rocks Local Area Plan, which will further complement the work conducted collaboratively between the City and placemaking consultancy RobertsDay on shaping the future of Yanchep Lagoon. See full details in Your Say.
About the project
Although Yanchep started out as a remote coastal town, Perth’s continuing growth will see the area ultimately become part of a thriving metropolitan corridor that stretches from the CBD to Two Rocks.
With Yanchep now one of Perth's fastest-growing suburbs, this change is already well underway. As more residents and businesses move into the surrounding area, we need a plan for the Lagoon that preserves the things that make it unique while also unlocking its full potential as a great coastal destination for everyone to enjoy.
To achieve this, the City is progressing the Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan, which sets a framework for future development and activities at the Lagoon.
