Town Planning

Town planning coordinates land use and development by balancing economic, social and environment issues. Planning policies, schemes and other statutory processes guide decisions that shape and focus on quality of life for the community. 

The York Local Planning Strategy and the York Town Planning Scheme No. 2 are the two main documents that guide development in the Shire. 

Planning approval is generally required prior to the use of land or construction of a building. In most cases a change of use also requires planning approval.  A Building Licence is also required for construction works. 

If your property is heritage listed or within a heritage precinct, then all works require planning approval and a building licence.  Council’s Planning staff can assist landowners and developers through the application process.

The Planning framework is governed by the Shire of York Local Planning Strategy while the local planning legislation is contained in the Shire of York Town Planning Scheme No.2.

Before commencing any development on land within the Shire, landowners and applicants are advised to contact the Shire's Planning Department on: 9641 2233 to arrange for an appointment to discuss their proposal. The Planning Department staff will be happy to assist landowners to determine whether formal applications are required and how they can guide the applicant through the process.
