Answered on


1173. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:

I refer to the minister's response to my question without notice 1148 asked yesterday.

(1) Which councils have identified challenges?

(2) What are the challenges that have been identified by individual councils?

(3) How is the government working with councils to help address individual challenges?

(4) Can the minister table any correspondence with councils on this issue?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Planning.

(1)–(4) For many years local governments, in particular in the Pilbara,� have faced the challenge of balancing the promotion of economic development and permanent population growth with satisfying the workforce management requirements of industry. The position statement document is intended to assist local governments to address workforce accommodation when preparing and implementing local planning schemes and strategies.
