Local Planning Schemes

Local governments are responsible for planning their local communities by ensuring appropriate planning controls exist for land use and development. They do this by preparing local planning schemes and strategies.

Local planning schemes set out the way land is to be used and developed, classify areas for land use and include provisions to coordinate infrastructure and development within the local government area.

For further information and a list of the Shire of Kojonup’s Local Planning Scheme documents, please visit Planning - Kojonup.


The subdivision of land is controlled by the State Government, via the Western Australian Planning Commission. More information is available from the link here.
