Planning Strategies

Albany Local Planning Strategy 2019

The City's new Local Planning Strategy 2019 will guide the City's progress towards its vision to be Western Australia's most sought after and unique regional city to work, live and visit.  It provides strategic direction which, over the long term, will deliver a more compact city where residents will live closer to local shops, services and employment with easy access to public transport and greater ability to walk or cycle.

The Strategy comprises two parts. 

  • Part 1 sets out the vision and objectives for the City and provides longer term direction for the City's settlement growth through land use and development strategies. 
  • Part 2 contains the background information and analysis and describes the present situation in Albany in terms of its population, settlement, housing, environment and economy.  It also highlights key planning implications which provide justification for the strategic direction and actions set out under Part 1.

All strategy maps are embedded within Part 1 and 2.

The Strategy was prepared in accordance with the State Planning Strategy and the Lower Great Southern Strategy.
