Report of Review

The Shire of Cocos (Keeling) Islands' Local Planning Scheme No. 1 (LPS 1) has been operational since 2007. In accordance with the Planning and Development Act 2005 (WA) (CKI) and associated Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 (WA) (CKI) (the Regulations), a local planning scheme must be reviewed every five years. In addition, each local planning scheme is to be supported by a local planning strategy prepared in accordance with Part 3 of the Regulations.

There is no local planning strategy associated with LPS 1, and a review of the Scheme has not yet been conducted.

A local planning strategy is a fundamental part of a local government’s planning framework and sets the strategic direction for planning and development in the Shire over the next 10 to 15 years. The strategy provides the strategic basis for the preparation, implementation and amendments to a local planning scheme. A local planning scheme is the primary mechanism to implement the strategy, through various provisions and subsidiary plans, such as local planning policies. Implementing a local planning strategy is a key point listed in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands Master Plan (2019).

This Report of Review for LPS 1 has been prepared pursuant to Part 6 of the Regulations, was adopted by Council on 27 April 2022 and can be found by following the link below.
