Local Area Plans

Local Area Plans

There are a number of plans that apply to specific areas within the Shire of Capel.

These are known as either Local Structure Plans, Activity Centre Plans or Local Development Plans.

A Local Structure Plan (LSP) identifies how land is to be developed and 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 facilities such as shops, schools and public open space, a Local Structure Plan also shows details such as housing density, land use classifications and zones, but it does not control built form.

An Activity Centre Plan (ACP) guides the types of land uses and the overall development (including built form) within an activity centre such as commercial, retail, higher density housing, or civic precincts, etc. It can detail land use and infrastructure requirements as well as environmental assets, residential density, built form, infrastructure and access arrangements.

A Local Development Plan (LDP) –is a mechanism used to coordinate and assist in achieving better built form outcomes by linking lot design to future development. It can facilitate the design and coordination of development upon small and highly constrained lots, and supplement development standards contained within the local planning scheme and the Residential Design Codes (R-Codes). They were previously known as Detailed Area Plans (DAPs).

The following list shows all currently approved Local Structure Plans, Activity Centre Plans and Local Development Plans that apply within the Shire of Capel, as well as non-statutory plans covering specific areas.

Notes:

An approved structure plan/activity centre plan/local development plan is valid for 10 years from the date of approval, unless otherwise specified in the approval or another period determined by the Western Australian Planning Commission.

All existing approved plans that were in place on 19 October 2015, being the commencement date of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, will expire 10 years from that date (i.e. 19 October 2025). This is in accordance with Schedule 2, Part 4 clause 28(2) or Part 5 clause 44(2) or Part 6 clause 57(2) of the Regulations, as applicable. Any plans approved after 19 October 2015 are valid for ten years from the date of approval.

Notwithstanding this, the Shire considers that any plans approved more than 10 years prior to the commencement date of the Regulations (i.e. before 19 October 2005) have limited weight and so are not included in the list above. These plans have not been included due to their age and lack of consistency with the current planning framework and most of the land they cover is now subdivided and developed.

In addition, this list does not include older subdivision or development guide plans referenced in specific clauses or provisions in the Shire of Capel Town Planning Scheme No.7, which are not Structure Plans, Activity Centre Plans or Local Development Plans as defined by the Regulations.
