   Submission form  (60.02 KB)

Call for public submissions

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) sought public comment on proposed changes to the  Development Control Policy 2.2 – Residential Subdivision (DC 2.2).

This policy sets out the WAPC’s requirements for landowners intending to subdivide residential land, and assists to create a diversity of lot and housing types throughout the State.

The proposed changes would introduce new criteria for average lot size variations greater than five per cent, including:

  • land with a residential coding of R10 to R30
  • a corner lot with frontage to more than one road (excluding a regional road) or dedicated road/right-of-way access to both front and rear boundaries
  • compliance with the minimum frontage requirements specified in Table 1 of the R-Codes and is regular in shape
  • crossovers and driveways are provided in accordance with Australian Standard 2890 and the R-Codes
  • corner truncations are excluded from the calculation of the average lot size
  • the applicant has provided information that demonstrates the variation will have a beneficial outcome for the community.

Submissions closed at 5pm 10 July 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Ellenbroek, Planning Manager, Urban Design and Development on 6551 9000.
