Opinion piece by UDIA WA CEO Tanya Steinbeck.

The State Government in Western Australia has a vision for a more compact and connected Perth.  They hope to realise that vision through a range of planning and policy mechanisms, such as setting urban infill targets for local government areas under the Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million frameworks.

Major infrastructure programs such as rolling out the METRONET public transport network are also part of that vision.

Of course, a vision for the growth of a city cannot be realised without the support of multiple stakeholders, not least, private industry.

Here in WA, the development industry is supporting the vision for a more compact and connected city through the quality projects that are being delivered in a range of areas in Perth and the regions.

The recent UDIA WA Awards for Excellence were a showcase of the evolution of Perth’s growth in recent years, with nearly all the winning projects featuring a mix of housing types, in particular townhouse and apartment projects in existing areas of Perth.
