A region scheme provide a statutory mechanism to assist strategic planning, the coordination of major infrastructure and sets aside areas for regional open space and other community purposes.
A region scheme usually covers more than one local government area. The content of the scheme may vary for each region, but they generally set out broad land use zones or policy areas and identify land required for regional purposes.
The WAPC prepare region schemes for the effective planning and coordination of land use and development. The schemes are approved by Parliament. There are three region schemes in operation in Western Australia - the Metropolitan Region Scheme, Peel Region Scheme and Greater Bunbury Region Scheme.
Local governments are responsible for planning their local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development. They do this by preparing and administering local planning schemes and strategies.
Local planning schemes set out the way land is to be used and developed, classify areas for land use and include provisions to coordinate infrastructure and development in a locality.
Local planning strategies set out the long-term planning directions for the local government, apply state and regional planning policies, and provide the rationale for the zones and other provisions of the local planning scheme.
Layout Plans set out the way land is to be protected, used and developed on Aboriginal settlements. They are prepared under State Planning Policy 3.2 - Aboriginal Settlements by the Department.
