Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) Amendment

Due to the community’s desire for aged care, the City after consultation with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) sought to initiate an MRS Amendment at Heidelberg Park. At the November 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to request the Western Australian Planning Commission to rezone a portion of Heidelberg Park from Parks and Recreation to Urban.
