The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) can declare that a planning control area is required to ensure that no development occurs on this land which might prejudice its purpose or its potential reservation in the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS),  Peel Region Scheme (PRS) or Greater Bunbury Region Scheme (GBRS).  As a result, all development applications are determined by the WAPC.
