Two development application forms

March 17, 2019

HIA has been made aware that all development applications in Regional Planning Scheme areas (eg. Metropolitan Perth, Bunbury) are required to submit both a Local Government application form and a Region Scheme Form. This ensures that the Applicant and the Local Government adhere to both Local Planning Schemes and Metropolitan Regional Schemes.

This requirement was recently emphasised in S&L Lenz Pty Ltd and the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale [2017] WASC 191 (at *31).

Local Governments in Region Planning Scheme areas may be requesting submission of two application forms for development applications – including those that have already been submitted.
