Abstract: Liveable Neighbourhoods (LN) is a Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) operational policy that includes design guidance and requirements relating to structure planning and subdivision of greenfield and large brownfield (urban infill) sites state-wide. Liveable Neighbourhoods is an integral component of the state planning framework, delivering the objectives of Directions 2031, draft Perth and Peel@3.5million sub-regional frameworks and future sub-regional structure plans. It plays a key role within the state planning framework and in relation to the local planning framework including local planning strategies, local planning schemes and policies. The WAPC initiated the review of Liveable Neighbourhoods which broadly included: • a staged review approach aligned to elements of Liveable Neighbourhoods; • comprehensive stakeholder engagement, including the establishment of a Technical Advisory Group (TAG), to identify operational effectiveness, emerging trends and solutions that need to be addressed through structure planning and subdivision; and • identification of major interpretation, inconsistency and implementation issues between Liveable Neighbourhoods and existing WAPC policies. A first draft Liveable Neighbourhoods was circulated for feedback to TAG and the WAPC. Submissions and feedback informed a redraft of Liveable Neighbourhoods. The WAPC and the Minister for Planning have now approved this revised draft for public consultation for a 60 day period.
