State Planning Policy 2.3 Jandakot Groundwater Protection (DOP-121)

A revised State Planning Policy 2.3 – Jandakot Groundwater Protection (SPP 2.3) was gazetted on 11 January 2017.

SPP 2.3 aims to protect the Jandakot Groundwater Protection Area from development and land uses that may have a detrimental impact on the water resource.

The objectives of this policy are:

  • To ensure that all development and changes to land use within the policy area are compatible with maximising the long-term protection and management of groundwater, in particular for public drinking water supply;

  • To protect groundwater quality and quantity in the policy area in order to maintain the ecological integrity of important wetlands that are hydraulically connected to that groundwater, including wetlands outside the policy area;

  • To prevent, minimise or manage development and land uses that may result in contamination of groundwater; and

  • To maintain or increase natural vegetation cover over the policy area.

The policy provides guidance regarding planning requirements that need to be considered in the policy area and should be read in conjunction with the Department of Water’s Water quality protection note 25: Land use compatibility tables in public drinking water source areas (as may be amended from time to time). All proposed development within the Jandakot Groundwater Protection Area should be consistent with Tables 1, 2 and 3 which set out appropriate land uses and activities within the assigned priority area.

Priority areas may change from time to time. The relevant priority areas and wellhead protection zones within the Jandakot Groundwater Protection area can be found on the Department of Planning’s PlanWA interactive planning map.

For any enquiries regarding the policy, contact waterpolicies@planning.wa.gov.au.
