“This study and its valuable partnership illustrates a progressive pathway to the future. A pathway that gets greater capacity out of our existing infrastructure, whilst retaining and complimenting the residential, transport and employment opportunities of our existing cities.”
Professor Rob Adams, Director of City Design, City of Melbourne.
Ever wondered how we will accommodate Perth’s anticipated population growth, without destroying our suburbs, heritage treasures, green spaces and character we love, while putting the brakes on Perth’s urban sprawl? How can we provide more affordable housing where people want to live, near work, schools, shops and entertainment? How do we reduce traffic congestion, car dependence and make public transport more efficient and convenient?
To find the answers to these pressing questions, the Greens partnered with the Property Council and the Australian Urban Design Research Centre on the Transforming Perth Study.
SUPPORT TRANSFORMING PERTH
The study identified the potential number of new dwellings that could fit into existing underdeveloped or neglected areas along seven of Perth’s 18 main transport corridors pegged for development as future rapid transit or light rail corridors.
Housing development and urban regeneration at the precinct level will deliver significant economic, social and environmental benefits.
