What is the Scheme Review?
The Town Planning Scheme (TPS) is the statutory document that controls the use and development of land within Cambridge. The scheme is being reviewed to ensure scheme provisions and policies remain valid and useful. A staged approach to the review will allow changes to the scheme to occur over time.
The scheme review will be guided by the preparation of a Local Planning Strategy (LPS) which will set a clear picture of objectives, planning intentions and proposals of both the Council and the community.
Plans or strategies may also be prepared for specific precincts to account for local history and character and/or specific land use and planning issues. Such studies include the West Leederville Planning and Urban Design Study.

How to get involved
Community consultation will be a key component of the Scheme review and development of local planning strategies and will include surveys, advertising of plans and public forums for example.
The review will shape the future of your neighbourhood and all community members are encouraged to take an interest and participate in the review process.
Updates and information on future consultation opportunities will be made available on this website as they occur.
Scheme amendments currently advertised
Town of Cambridge Planning Scheme No. 1 - Scheme Amendment 25
Council has resolved to initiate an amendment to Town of Cambridge No.1 to rezone Lot 270 (No. 152) Jersey Street and Part Lot 1000 (No. 322-326) Cambridge Street, Wembley from 'Residential R20 to 'Local Centre'.
The site is partly used for car parking already and the 'Local Centre' rezoning will address an irregularity in the Town Planning Scheme. The proposal will also accommodate expansion of the parking site to provide the opportunity to improve the car park layout and access.
Preliminary concept drawings for proposed carparking have been submitted to support the application. Please note that these plans are indicative of future development on the site and do not represent any formal plans lodged with the Town of Cambridge.
