Local Government Policies

Liberal Planning Policy
 
The Liberal-led Government has progressed a bold planning reform and infrastructure investment agenda. The Liberal Party is committed to underpinning Western Australia’s economic growth with a strong and stable planning system and transformative capital works projects, including Elizabeth Quay, Perth City Link, the Riverside Project and the revitalisation of the Perth Cultural Centre and William Street.
 
The reforms of our planning system include the introduction of Development Assessment Panels, a streamlining of the planning process to provide more robust and integrated planning systems and, significantly, the creation of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA).

The Greens (WA) believe that Local Government needs to be realistically resourced and re-empowered.

The Greens (WA) acknowledge Local Government’s valuable role in the local governance and representation of local issues and delivery of essential community services. We believe that Federal and State Constitutions should ensure the right of Local Governments to express the will of their constituents.

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
