- Improvement Plan No. 47 will assist the WA Planning Commission's investigations to assess future development scenarios in Mandogalup
- Stakeholder consultation will be key to the process
The State Government has released an Improvement Plan to progress comprehensive planning for the Mandogalup area.
Establishing an Improvement Plan for the subject area is an important step forward as it facilitates assessment of development scenarios - rural, urban and industrial. This work will be crucial for defining a statutory and strategic framework that will enable the WA Planning Commission to assess future land use proposals.
Stakeholder engagement with landowners, local government, industry and peak bodies will be undertaken and form a major part of delivering the framework, which will be based on detailed investigations, technical reports, and structure planning.
Outcomes of the investigations will feed into the preparation of an Improvement Scheme, which will inform and provide the WA Planning Commission with direct authority over the area's land use and development.
