Local Planning Scheme No.5
Local Planning Scheme No. 5 provides zoning information, the categories and use/s of land within each zone and development requirements specific to the municipality of the Town of Port Hedland. Local Planning Scheme No. 5 and associated Scheme Amendments will assist you in determining planning requirements such as the what can be developed on a particular parcel of land, the carparking requirments, advertising of your proposal and the timeframe for processing an application for planning approval.

Residential Design Codes
The purpose of the R-Codes is to provide a comprehensive basis for the control, through local government, of residential development throughout Western Australia. While the document should be read in its entirety, specific common site requirements such as boundary setbacks, minimum site area per dwelling and building heights are listed in the tables at the end of the R-Codes document.

Local Planning Policies
Council Planning Policies are local policies or requirements that are not covered in Town Planning Scheme No. 5 and may target specific development types. These policies should be considered in conjunction with the Scheme, Scheme Amendments and Residential Design Codes prior to making application for a proposed development.

Development Plans
Development Plans provide a framework for the coordinated provision and arrangement of future land use, subdivision and development including the provision of transport networks; public open space; utility and service networks; urban water management; development standards; and community infrastructure and other investment and staging programs.

Heritage Inventory (2017)
The heritage of Port Hedland is rich in history, stories, people and places. The Town's Heritage Inventory (2017) is used for the assessment of development proposals affecting heritage places.
