  3. Public Notice: Draft Local Planning Policy 3.7 Site Works

Published 13 July 2022

Notice is hereby given that the City of Bunbury is currently advertising draft Local Planning Policy 3.7 Site Works for public comment. The Policy will replace the City’s current policy LPP3.3 Changes to Ground Level and Retaining Walls – both the existing and draft policy are attached for reference.

Draft LPP3.7 Site Works provides a framework for the assessment of satisfying the ‘design principles’ of clause 5.3.7 Site Works of the R-Codes, where a variation to deemed-to-comply requirements is sought. The revised policy applies to changes to ground levels and/or retaining walls for residential development where the R-Codes apply. Further commentary on the proposed changes can be also be viewed by reference to the recent Council report – see attached.

Submissions on the revised Local Planning Policy can be lodged by mail to 4 Stephen Street Bunbury, in person or at on or before close of business on Wednesday 10 August 2022.

Should you require any further information please contact Matilda Hodge, A/Senior Planning Officer, on (08) 9792 7015.
