Approved Local Planning Scheme and Local Planning Strategy

Local Planning Scheme No. 2 and Local Planning Strategy

It is hereby notified for public information, in accordance with Section 87(3) of the Planning and Development Act 2005  and Regulation 16(2) of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 that the Minister for Planning approved the Shire of Leonora Local Planning Scheme No. 2 on 21 July 2021 and Shire of Leonora Local Planning Strategy on 8 July 2021.

The Shire of Leonora Town Planning Scheme No. 1 (TPS1) was originally gazetted on 23 November 1984, and was last amended on 24 November 2009. Due to its age, TPS1 was out-of-date and did not comply with the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015. In particular, the scheme was not aligned with the model provisions or deemed provisions set out in the Regulations, and therefore needed to be repealed and replaced with a new scheme.

The Regulations also require that local governments prepare a local planning strategy for the local planning scheme. Given that the preparation of a new scheme was required, this also created a need for the preparation of a new strategy.
