The following provides an explanation of the terminology used in the recommendation:
‘Accept’ means that the City accepts the planning matters raised in the submission and recommends that draft LPS1 should be modified to correct/improve the content or maps of LPS1.
‘Accept in part’ means that the City accepts some of the planning matters raised in the submission and recommends that draft LPS1 be modified to the extent to which the submission is agreed to.
‘Reject’ means that the City rejects the planning matters raised in the submission and no change to draft LPS1 is recommended.To avoid delays to the final approval of the Local Planning Scheme 1, the City’s planning staff did not support major modifications to the draft scheme; modifications where additional information or reports were required to support the modification, where extensive consultation or re-advertising will be required; or modifications that have the potential to prejudice the land uses or amenity of neighbouring property owners.
Where a submission is considered to have potential merit, but is likely to result in re-advertising, or should be supported by additional technical information, the submission is recommended to be rejected and a recommendation made under ‘Other City Recommendations’ that the matter be investigated as part of the review of the Albany Local Planning Strategy and/or that it could be considered through a separate amendment to LPS1 after gazettal. This particularly relates to submissions that request rezoning of land where detailed investigation (such as land capability, fauna and flora assessment, fire risk etc.) may be required. Submissions for spot rezoning were also recommended for rejection as this has potential to affect amenity, or the orderly planning of an area, and has potential to create land use conflict in some areas.

Finalisation of draft LPS1
Town Planning Regulations 1967 stipulate the process relevant to the finalisation of draft LPS1. Following adoption of draft LPS1 for finalisation, the City refers all of the submissions and associated scheme documents to the WA Planning Commission for their consideration and assessment. The WA Planning Commission then makes a recommendation to the Minister for Planning. The Minister for Planning will make the final determination on the Scheme. When the Scheme is approved, the City will publish a notice of approval in the local newspaper and advise all submitters of this outcome.
