Development control policy 4.2 - Planning for hazards and safety

The main objective of this policy is to ensure that the planning process addresses exposure of the public to risk from man-made and natural events.

The risk implications of a proposed development should be taken account of and weighed against factors which need to be considered in land use planning.

The policy highlights the principles which will guide the WAPC in its considerations and also identifies the procedures within and associated with the planning process which should be followed to ensure that appropriate considerations and referrals are taken account of.
