Crossman and Fraser Road Subdivision Application

Published on Monday, 28 February 2022 at 12:00:00 PM

The Shire of Boddington has recently received a referral from the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) to provide comment on a subdivision application on Crossman and Fraser Roads.

Applications for subdivision are made directly to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC), with the WAPC being responsible for determining applications for subdivisions under the Planning and Development Act 2005.

Following receipt of an application, the WAPC refers the application to the relevant local government and service / utility providers for comment, objections or recommendations.

Once a subdivision application referral is received by the Shire, local government staff have 42 days from the date of referral to:

  1. Assess the application.
  2. Notify the WAPC of whether the application complies with the Shire of Boddington Local Planning Scheme No. 3 and any relevant local policies.
  3. Provide comment regarding support for the application, as well as any proposed conditions.

The WAPC will then consider the application based on comments received from referral agencies, assess the application against the local planning scheme, relevant WAPC policies, physical attributes or conditions of the site, and other relevant matters. The WAPC will then approve an application with or without conditions, or refuse an application.

Council have previously considered matters relating to the proposed Crossman and Fraser Road development on a number of occasions, including in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013. Required community/ stakeholder advertising occurred in 2010 and 2013. The planning and preparation requirements for subdivisions is complex, and in this case, there has been a long period of time from environmental assessment and rezoning, with associated community/stakeholder advertising, to the subdivision stage.

Council will hold a Special Council Meeting at 6pm on Thursday 3 March 2022, to determine what comments and associated conditions should be provided back to the WAPC for consideration.
