Amended 9 March 2018


Armadale Road Deviation (Cockburn Central)

City of Cockburn

General description

The Minister for Planning has granted approval to amend Planning Control Area 122. The planning control area has previously been declared to protect the future primary regional road reservation for the Armadale Road bridge/North Lake Road re-alignment.  The planning control area is now amended to include all lots severed to the south by the deviation route, as well as adjustments to account for the final alignment of the Armadale Road deviation and new North Lake Bridge / Freeway interchange, as shown on Western Australian Planning Commission plan number 1.7415/2.


The purpose of the planning control area is to protect the future primary regional road reservation for the Armadale Road bridge/North Lake Road re-alignment. The WAPC considers that the planning control area is required over the whole of the land to ensure that no development occurs on this land which might prejudice this purpose until it may be reserved for future primary regional road reservation in the Metropolitan Region Scheme.

Duration and effects

The amended Planning Control Area has effect from the date of publication of this notice in the Government Gazette (9 March 2018) to 8 March 2021, or until revoked by the WAPC with the approval of the Minister.

A person shall not commence and carry out development in a planning control area without the prior approval of the WAPC. The penalty for failure to comply with this requirement is $200,000 and, in the case of a continuing offence, a further fine of $25,000 for each day during which the offence continues.

Compensation is payable in respect of land injuriously affected by this declaration, and land so affected may be acquired by the WAPC in the same circumstances and in the same manner as if the land had been reserved in the Metropolitan Region Scheme for a public purpose.
