Draft state planning policy 5.4 - road and rail noise

13 Sep 2017

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) is seeking public comment on proposed changes to State Planning Policy 5.4 Road and Rail Noise and associated guidelines.

A key objective of SPP 5.4 is to minimise the impact of road and rail noise on noise-sensitive land uses; and protect the State’s key transport corridors. The current policy was gazetted in 2009.

The review of SPP 5.4 has been overseen by a sub-committee of the WAPC and supported by a Technical Working Group comprising relevant government and industry stakeholders, and informed by technical acoustic analysis.

Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 15 December 2017.
