The City’s Strategic Planning Team monitors and reviews the compatibility, appropriateness and viability of current and future land use and developments.
The Local Planning Strategy is the overarching Planning Strategy guiding the City’s development
and is generally required to be reviewed every five (5) years. The City is currently developing a number of sub-strategies to inform the City’s new Local Planning Strategy.
The Local Planning Strategy (LPS) enables Council to determine the vision and strategic planning direction for the City of Kalamunda for the next 20 years, to coincide with Directions 2031. The LPS is endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC), and has been prepared after an assessment of all relevant State and Regional planning documents.

The City of Kalamunda’s Local Housing Strategy sets out actions for meeting the future housing needs of the community, and managing the character and amenity of existing residential areas.
The Public Open Space Strategy aims to ensure that Public Open Space (POS) is delivered in a way that optimises benefits to the community and provides direction to guide the future provision, enhancement and management of POS.
The Industrial Development Strategy provides direction for strategic and statutory planning decision making within the City of Kalamunda, to facilitate and manage growth and changes to industrial estates within the municipal area. The City’s industrial areas are well situated for industrial activity given the proximity to major freight routes, established industrial estates and Perth Airport.

The City’s Rural East Strategies will guide planning and development within rural areas.
The City’s Activity Centres Strategy will ensure that activity centres within the City are delivered to optimise community benefit by providing direction to guide the future development and enhancement of amenity.
