About Planning Services Division

The Shire of Dardanup’s Planning Services Division helps ensure future planning continues to align with community expectation and Council’s mission:

“Provide effective leadership in encouraging balanced growth and development of the shire while recognising the diverse needs of the community.”

Our Planning Services Division is responsible for coordinating future growth of residential estates, commercial centres, tourism development and rural and recreational areas through:

  • Preparation and application of Town Planning Schemes, policies and strategies
  • Assessment of proposed developments and rezoning or subdivision applications

The Shire’s Planning Officers are friendly, approachable, very knowledgeable and experienced. A Duty Planner is available every day to assist with your enquiries and provide you with the information you need. Phone us on 9724 0000 and request an appointment with the Duty Planner.

In addition, our website provides a range of information to assist with your planning needs step by step.

If you are new to this process, a good place to start is an Planning Guidelines page and then figuring out if you need to apply for a Planning Application.
