Local Planning Scheme No. 3 - Effective from 28 February 2018
Local governments are required to maintain a Local Planning Scheme. The Local Planning Scheme consists of a Scheme Text and Map. The text provides the statutory guidance for development, including development provisions, permitted uses and compliance matters. The map provides the zonings for the land, which in turn indicate the type of uses that may be possible in each particular area. The current Local Planning Scheme is Local Planning Scheme No. 3 which was gazetted on 28 February 2018.
The Scheme is available for download here, along with the Scheme Map:
Local Planning Policies
Local Planning Scheme No. 3 is supported by a number of Local Planning Policies which guide decision-making and implementation of the Scheme. Policies are generally guidelines that provide transparency to the general public and the Town’s staff on how discretion will be exercised over certain matters within the Scheme area of the Town of Mosman Park.
The policies do not bind the Town in making a decision contrary to a Policy and do not hinder the Town from otherwise considering the merits of each application. Nevertheless, in considering a development application for planning approval, the Town must still have due regard to all relevant Local Planning Policies.

Residential Design Codes (R-Codes)
Development within the Town is subject to the provisions of the Town of Mosman Park Planning Scheme No. 2 which incorporates the provisions of State Planning Policy 3.1 - Residential Design Codes (R-Codes).
The R-Codes are available from the Department of Planning here.
WAWA Contour Maps
