Over the next 20 years the population of the City of Albany will grow and the lifestyle that residents currently enjoy needs to be protected.

The adopted Albany Local Planning Strategy provides the blueprint for that growth and is reviewed every five years to ensure it continues to reflect sound planning principles and community expectations.

The Albany Local Planning Strategy also reflects the objectives of the State Planning Strategy and the Lower Great Southern Strategy prepared by the Western Australian Planning Commission.
