Published on Wednesday, 24 November 2021 at 11:00:25 AM

On 16 November 2021, Council formally adopted Local Planning Policy 49: Ancillary Dwellings following public consultation.

The policy will provide guidance for the development and use of ancillary dwellings (commonly known as ‘granny flats’) within the Shire.

A copy of the policy in full and an information sheet can be found at https://www.denmark.wa.gov.au/plan-build-develop/planning-services/planning-policies.aspx

Minor changes to the Local Planning Scheme were also published by the State Government on 12 November, resulting in the Shire now having a best practice approach that enables the development of ancillary dwellings.
