The Planning and Development (Local Planning Scheme) Regulations 2015 (Regulations) were gazetted on 25 August 2015 and introduced 'deemed provisions' which are applicable to all local planning schemes in Western Australia. If a deemed provision is inconsistent with another provision of a local planning scheme, the deemed provision prevails to the extent of the inconsistency. The deemed provisions are set out in Schedule 2 of the Regulations.
The City's local planning scheme text has been updated to remove any inconsistencies and provide reference to the current deemed provision.
The City of Bayswater Town Planning Scheme No 24 is the only local planning scheme used in the City of Bayswater.
Land within the scheme area is classified by different zones and precincts, as shown on the scheme map. The scheme text details what type of uses are allowed within each zone and precinct, and outlines requirements relating to development including built form, enforcement and administration.
The City has a number of other documents which also guide and/or amend the development requirements including; local planning policies, heritage protection areas, structure plans, activity centre plans, and local development plans. These documents should be read in conjunction with the scheme text.
The scheme text should be read in conjunction with Schedule 2 'Deemed provisions for local planning schemes' of the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, which are automatically incorporated into the TPS Scheme text notwithstanding that they do not appear in the scheme text. For ease of reference a working version of the scheme text (including reference to the applicable deemed provisions) is available for viewing below. The legal version of the scheme text is available on the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) website, via the link below.
