Structure Plans

The Shire has prepared and adopted a number of Strategic Plans and Structure Plans to guide decision making throughout the Shire.

Waroona Town Centre Strategy

The Waroona Town Centre Strategy was finalised in December 2003. The Strategy will guide the enhancement of the commercial and cultural centre of Waroona in the coming years. Improvements proposed include the creation of a Town Square (“Drakesbrook Place”) near Memorial Hall, consolidation of Youth facilities near the Town Square, underground power and footpath and road improvements for South Western Highway, a new park between the highway and Waroona Hotel, and upgrading the parking and picnic facilities between Fouracre Street and the railway.

The Strategy also makes recommendations about the location and design of directional and tourist signage, suitable species of street trees and a range of colours for buildings in the Town Centre.

Lake Clifton - Herron Structure Plan

The Lake Clifton - Herron Structure Plan (click here for final document submitted to WAPC for approval) (click here for plan) was endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission in December 2009 as a strategic land-use Plan for the rural lifestyle communities of Lake Clifton and Herron.

Waroona North Structure Plan

The Waroona North Structure Plan was adopted in November 2006 to guide land use and development north of the Waroona townsite during and after mineral sand mining. For an abridged version of the Waroona North Structure Plan please click here. For a full copy please contact Council's Planning Department on 97337800.

Following on from the adoption of the Waroona North Structure Plan, Iluka has commenced detailed structure planning for their landholdings and those immediately north of the townsite through the preparation of the Waroona Townsite Expansion Plan.

An initial Concept Plan document has been prepared on behalf of Iluka by Roberts Day.

Extracts of the document are available by clicking on the links below. A full copy of the document is available for viewing at the Shire office.

The Shire of Waroona has noted the Concept Plan document, but has not established a position on it at this time.
