THE State Government has released WA’s first statewide blueprint for planning and development along Western Australia's coast – the Coastal Statement of Planning Policy. The policy requires a 100-metre development setback to protect against coastal processes such as erosion and storms and provides guidance on how setbacks should be determined.
It discourages continuous linear development along the coast and encourages urban development to be concentrated around existing coastal settlements.
