Proposed Local Planning Policy 11 - Stormwater management 

Notice is hereby given that the Town has initiated Local Planning Policy 11 - Stormwater management (LPP/11).

The purpose of the proposed policy is to assist engineers and developers with preparing a suitable stormwater management plan.  Detailed stormwater management plans at the planning stage are critical in the early design process.  The correct design and construction of appropriate systems will assist with reducing the damaging effects of heavy rainfall events on private and public property and the public drainage network.  The objectives of the Policy are to:

  • Promote disaster resilient development;
  • Enable robust design and mitigate the likelihood of erosion or flooding;
  • Protect private and public property and prevent off-site impacts;
  • Preserve efficient stormwater management during rainfall events;
  • Ensure life is not placed at risk; and
  • Enhance the water quality and prevent land degradation.

This Policy is designed to apply to development or land uses where the stormwater flow may be altered or affected, including but not limited to:

  • Earthworks;
  • Subdivisions;
  • Modifications to existing stormwater systems;
  • Landscaping, verge modifications or works within the road or drainage reserve;
  • Government projects; and
  • Industrial, commercial and residential development.

Should you wish to make a submission, please ensure that it is lodged by Friday, 6 August 2021. A written submission can be made:

  • In-person: At the Civic Centre - 13 McGregor Street, Port Hedland;
  • Via post: PO Box 41, Port Hedland WA 6721; or
