The Swan Valley Planning Bill passed Parliament in late 2020. This bill has been something I have been working on for many years and I am so pleased this legislation has passed.
The Act recognises the unique character of the Swan valley as a productive agricultural region within the Perth metropolitan area, entitle to a separate standalone planning system.
The new Swan Valley Planning Scheme facilitated by the Act will provide certainty to landowners, residents and small businesses and enable them to realise a sustainable long-term future.
Thank you to all the local residents and community groups for their support and input into this legislation.
