The statement follows the Commission’s review of the recent decision by the State Administrative Tribunal in relation to the ongoing matter between the City of Joondalup and Shalom House.

The Position Statement: Exemptions under local planning schemes and approvals under the Metropolitan Region Scheme will help local governments in their determination if development approval is required under the MRS for a proposal that does not need approval under their local planning scheme.

The MRS defines how land in the Perth metropolitan region can be used by dividing it into broad zones and reservations.
