The Western Australian Planning Commission is the State Government authority with the ultimate control over the processing and determination of subdivision within Western Australia. Although Local Government does not share such decision making powers, it is nonetheless an important partner in the subdivision process through providing comment and recommendation on every subdivision proposed in its local area. Local Government also plays an important role in assessing the design and construction of subdivisions which have been granted approval by the Western Australian Planning Commission to ensure requirements are met and each condition relevant to Local Government is been satisfied.
The Western Australian Planning Commission also commonly imposes conditions relevant to servicing authorities and Local Government (Water Corporation, Western Power, Telstra, ATCO Gas etc.), and these authorities similarly ensure each condition relevant to them is satisfied as part of the design and construction of subdivision.
