In accordance with section 3.50 of the Local Government Act 1995, Part 3 (Functions of Local Governments – Closing Certain Thoroughfares To Vehicles), the Shire of Augusta Margaret River is undertaking minor reconstruction works to the bend at Barrett Road and Rosa Brook Road. See location map here. 

Works are programmed to commence mid-April 2021 and are expected to take approximately four weeks to complete (weather permitting).  During works, individual property will not be affected.  Traffic management will be in place and some delays are likely.  The Shire will endeavour to avoid lengthy delays, however where an alternative route is possible, please consider this.

Works are jointly funded by Main Roads – Regional Road Groups and the Shire of Augusta Margaret River.

The Shire is advertising a draft amendment to Local Planning Policy No.7.

The amendment will remove the ability for grouped dwellings to be used for holiday house purposes within proximity to the Margaret River Town Centre (as shown on policy plan 1). As an owner of a property falling into this category, the Shire is notifying you of this change as it may affect the use of your property into the future.

The purpose of the change is to ensure that sufficient smaller, well located and more affordable long term rental accommodation continues to be available for that purpose.

The changes would apply to new applications only. If you have an existing holiday house approval, these will continue to be honoured and you will still be able to apply for renewal of your approval. However please note, that if your approval expires (i.e. you do not apply for a renewal 3 months prior to it lapsing) then a new application is unlikely to be approved if the proposed changes are adopted.

The draft Policy LPP No.7 can be viewed by visiting https://yoursay.amrshire.wa.gov.au/planning-consultation-hub

•    Relaxation of the 5m side setback requirement where sheds and water tanks are located behind the dwelling on R5 and lower coded lots;
•    Clarification on wall height measurement for different roof types, particularly skillion roofs.
