Planning Policies

Policies and Guidelines are put into place to guide development of individual sites within the City of Albany and to provide the community with a clear understanding of what the Council aims to achieve on individual development sites. The policies are prepared for the benefit of property owners, developers and the Council, to ensure a consistent approach is taken and to maintain a high quality of development within the City.

Local Planning Policies and Guidelines are an essential supplement to the City’s Local Planning Scheme 1 and they are brought into effect by the provisions of the Scheme.

Please check to see if your proposed development is affected by any of these policies to ensure you are aware of any provisions that may apply. Our staff will be happy to help you with an enquiry.
