Local Housing Strategy

The trend for the Perth Metropolitan Region has historically seen rapid outward growth with predominantly single storey houses. The State Government has identified infill targets for different local governments in order to stop the sprawl in favour of more efficient infill developments.

The Shire’s Local Housing Strategy (approved 24/3/14) is a document that provides a rationale for careful and strategic housing density changes around town centres and other focus areas. The Local Housing Strategy identifies the areas in the Shire that will benefit most from the density changes. These benefits include more diverse housing types and more efficient use of the existing and new infrastructure, community services, schools and public transport.

The Local Housing Strategy led to the implementation of Local Planning Scheme Amendment 82 – Dual Density Codes.
