Statistics

The City is committed to processing planning and building applications as early as possible within statutory timeframes, while maintaining the quality of its assessments. The City supports that commitment to expediting applications with in-house recordkeeping and auditing, and ongoing participation in these monitoring projects which compare performance across Local Government:

  • The Western Australian Local Government Association’s (WALGA) Local Government Performance Monitoring project (3 years); and
  • The Australasian LG Performance Excellence Program.

Some key statistics from the WALGA report for the 19/20 financial year are:

  • The City of Armadale is one of only 10 Local Governments surveyed that has a current Local Planning Strategy with a strong strategic alignment with State Government Policies and the City’s Strategic Community Plan;
  • The City finalised 3 Town Planning Scheme Amendments during that year, which was above the survey average of 2;
  • The City determined 98% of all applications within statutory timeframes compared to the survey average of 93%;
  • 94% of development applications were determined by the City within statutory timeframes whereas the survey average was 81%;
  • The City determined 100% of Building Applications within statutory timeframes.

This page will continue to be updated with information that becomes available from performance monitoring projects.
