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

Submissions closed at 5pm on Friday 15 December 2017.

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.
