NEW R-CODES CHECKLIST AND PRACTICE NOTES
The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) has released new
R-Codes practice notes and an assessment checklist to assist designers, applicants, assessors and decision-makers involved in residential development.
The aim of the Practice Notes is to clarify common technical matters arising for applicants, assessors and decision-makers throughout the interpretation and implementation of R-Codes ‘deemed to comply’ standards. General operational matters are also addressed regarding R-Codes status and application.
The Assessment Checklist aims to provide a determination process that is consistent, accurate and quicker; through streamlining the residential development applications compliance assessment, outlining all matters to be taken under consideration.
The checklist and practice notes can be viewed on the Department of Planning website.
