DESIGN WA — STAGE 1 POLICIES
      510. Hon PETER COLLIER to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:
I refer to the draft Design WA stage 1 policies and the draft ''Design Review Guide'', which were expected to be finalised in early 2018.
      (1) Have the policies and the ''Design Review Guide'' been endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission; and, if so, on what date were they endorsed?
      (2) Has the planning reform team, led by Evan Jones, provided advice to the minister on the stage 1 policies and/or the ''Design Review Guide''?
(3) If yes to (2), on what date was that advice provided to the minister?
      (4) If yes to (1), has the minister received the stage 1 policies and the ''Design Review Guide'' for approval; and, if so, on what date were they received in her office?
(5) When does the minister expect to release the final policies and the ''Design Review Guide''?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the Leader of the Opposition for some notice of the question.
(1) No.
      (2)–(3) The ''Modernising Western Australia's Planning System'' green paper makes a number of proposals related to the state planning framework, of which Design WA is a part.
(4) No.
      (5) Work continues on the draft Design WA stage 1 suite, particularly the draft ''Apartment Design'' policy, and has to be approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission before it is released.
