We Asked, You Said, We Did

Below are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

State Planning Policy 5.2

We Asked:
We asked for your views on the draft State Planning Policy 5.2 Telecommunications Infrastructure.
You Said:
In the main, you said that you supported the revised policy, that it provided clearer direction in some areas but improvements could be made.
We Did:
We reviewed all of your comments and prepared a revised final policy that has now been gazetted. The new policy can be found on the Western Australian Department of Planning's website at http://www.planning.wa.gov.au/State-planning-policies

Telecommunications Infrastructure

We Asked:
We asked you what you thought about the siting of Telecommunications Infrastructure, whether you were concerned about the location of telecommunications towers and whether you were happy with the level of mobile data services in your area.
You Said:
You told us that you were concerned about mobile data service coverage, especially in regional Western Australia. You were mostly concerned about impacts of poor coverage on communications in emergency situations and on business activities.
We Did:
Based on your comments, we have revised the State Planning Policy 5.2 – Telecommunications Infrastructure, which is now open for comment.

During the consultation process, we ask for your feedback, you tell us and then we make positive changes. Public participation is key to our work. See what happens with We Asked, You Said, We Did.
