PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT ACT 2005

SHIRE OF NORTHAM

LOCAL PLANNING SCHEME NO.6

DRAFT REVISED LOCAL PLANNING POLICY AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION

 The Shire of Northam has prepared the following Draft Revised Local Planning Policy and public comments are invited:

LOCAL PLANNING POLICY NO.13 – ANCILLARY DWELLINGS

The draft revised policy applies to proposals for ancillary dwellings (‘granny flats’) in the Shire of Northam within the Rural, Rural Residential and Rural Smallholding zones only.

The primary objectives of this Policy are to:

  • Establish appropriate criteria for the consideration of applications for the development of ancillary dwellings in areas not subject to the R-Codes.
  • Provide flexibility and assistance in providing accommodation to family members within the same lot to meet the needs of local residents.
  • Ensure ancillary dwellings do not compromise the amenity of the surrounding properties and the streetscape by remaining at a scale that is ancillary to the main dwelling.

A copy of the draft revised policy is available for inspection at the Shire office, 395 Fitzgerald Street, Northam, the Northam Public Library at 298 Fitzgerald Street, Northam, and the Wundowie Library on Boronia Avenue, Wundowie.
