Metropolitan Region Scheme

The Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) is a large town planning scheme for land use in the Perth metropolitan area. This area stretches from Singleton in the south to Two Rocks in the north and east to The Lakes.

The MRS defines the future use of land, dividing it into broad zones and reservations. It requires local government town planning schemes to provide detailed plans for their part of the region. These schemes must be consistent with the MRS.

The MRS uses a set of maps and a scheme text. The scheme text provides planning rules for zones and reservations which are shown on the maps in different colours and patterns. Refer to the Metropolitan Region Scheme - Scheme text which is amended from time to time.

This plan has been in operation since 1963 and provides the legal basis for planning in the Perth metropolitan region. To plan for changing needs, the Metropolitan Region Scheme map is amended frequently.

Peel Region Scheme

The Peel Region Scheme (PRS) is a large town planning scheme which guides land use in the Peel Region. This area includes the local government boundaries of the City of Mandurah and the shires of Murray and Waroona.

The PRS defines the future use of land, dividing it into broad zones and reservations. It requires local government town planning schemes to provide detailed plans for their respective parts of the region. These schemes must be consistent with the PRS.

The PRS uses a set of maps and a scheme text. The scheme text provides planning rules for zones and reservations, which are shown on the maps in their respective colours and patterns. Refer to the Peel Region Scheme - Scheme text which is amended from time to time.

This plan has been in operation since March 2003 and provides the legal basis for planning in the Peel region.

To plan for changing needs, the Peel Region Scheme map needs to be amended from time to time.

Greater Bunbury Region Scheme

The Greater Bunbury Region Scheme (GBRS) is a local planning scheme for land use in the Greater Bunbury region.

This area stretches from Lake Preston in the north, Peppermint Grove Beach in the south, eastwards to Daring Scarp, and covers the City of Bunbury and the shires of Harvey, Dardanup and Capel.

It is estimated that by 2031 the population of the Greater Bunbury region will exceed 100 000 people. Therefore, it is important to ensure that there is an adequate supply of commercial, residential and industrial land as well as conserving key environmental features to provide future growth.

The GBRS defines the future of land use, dividing it into zones and reservations. Local governments will be required to provide detailed plans for their part of the region consistent with the GBRS.

The GBRS will use maps and scheme text. The scheme text provides planning rules for zones and reservations, which are shown on the maps in different colours and patterns.
