The present system for assessing development proposals in WA requires a proponent to satisfy the requirements of at least two Acts of Parliament (Environmental Protection Act 1986 and Town Planning and Development Act 1929) and several statutory authorities. These assessments are separate and their intent and requirements may sometimes conflict. This can create unnecessary delays and duplication of effort in the assessment and approval of development projects.
