Planning Approval

All land within the Shire of Jerramungup is subject to the Shire’s Local Planning Scheme No 2. Therefore if you are intending to use a property for a particular purpose or intend to build on a property you first need to obtain planning approval from the Shire. This applies to both urban and rural land.

We recommend you contact the Shire’s Planning Officer in the early stages of planning for your development to ascertain how the Shire’s requirements may apply to your proposal.

Planning decisions are made by the Shire based on the Shire of Jerramungup’s Local Planning Scheme No.2 and can often involve consultation with the community, Council and relevant State Government departments. If planning approval is granted, it is usually subject to a range of conditions.

For a planning application form and the applicable fees and charges please contact the Shire's Planning Officer or visit our 'Forms, Fees & Links' page. This page also has information packs that provide basic information on specific aspects of development.

The assessment process is summarised as follows:
