Call for public submissions

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on proposed changes to State Planning Policy 5.4 Road and Rail Noise and associated guidelines.

A key objective of SPP 5.4 is to minimise the impact of road and rail noise on noise-sensitive land uses; and protect the State’s key transport corridors. The current policy was gazetted in 2009.

The review of SPP 5.4 has been overseen by a sub-committee of the WAPC and supported by a Technical Working Group comprising relevant government and industry stakeholders, and informed by technical acoustic analysis.
