Services – Town Planning

Creating a high quality urban and rural environment

Town Planning is about people and the community and aims to maintain and improve our quality of life. Council takes a great deal of care in planning our community and the Town Planning Services team aims to create a high quality urban and rural environment. 

Catering for different tastes, needs and lifestyles

While all communities are made up of individuals with different tastes, needs and lifestyles, some values are common to all. One of the main functions of the Town Planning Services team is to ensure that development and land use proposals are appropriate for the area and it is important that the town planning process considers a range of factors before making any decisions. 

How the Town Planning Services team can help

All land in the City of Greater Geraldton falls under Town Planning Scheme controls, so if you are considering erecting a building or intend using land for a purpose different to its current use please contact your Town Planning Services team first. You may need to lodge a development application and planning approval may need to be obtained before taking any further action.
