Landmark plans that define the future shape of Perth and Peel for the next 35 years have been released for public comment. The Perth and Peel regions stretch more than 150 kilometres from Two Rocks in the northern suburbs to Bouvard in the south.
Minister John Day said the current outward sprawl of the city was unsustainable and accommodating a substantial population increase would require a shift in thinking.
"These draft plans make better use of existing infrastructure by co-locating jobs and homes close to public transport and amenities. Greater density and mixed-use developments in activity centres will also ensure we create a more compact and consolidated Perth and Peel."
Mr Day said the plans would give people more choice in their housing options; to stay in the suburb they grew up in; to live and work in a preferred suburb and to live in the type of home most suitable for them.
"A house with a backyard will always be an option, however the Government is enabling more housing choices to suit the lifestyle and budget of all West Australians," he said.
"The draft plans will ensure we maintain and enhance Perth and Peel's vibrancy and liveability and I encourage everyone to have their say."
The Plans are available for review on this link.
