The City of Perth has announced the release of its draft City Planning Strategy for public feedback, with councillors hoping to drive a focus on housing, employment and public spaces.
The City Planning Strategy will guide future land use planning and decision-making for Perth city over the next 10-15 years. The Strategy will inform the development of a new City Planning Scheme, which will provide detailed planning and development guidance.
The Strategy focuses on guiding growth and improving amenity across Perth city’s six identified neighbourhoods – Nedlands-Crawley, West Perth, Central Perth, Northbridge, Claisebrook and East Perth.
The City has identified three ‘Key Moves’, that brings together the City’s, stakeholders and community’s ambitions for Perth city. Each of these Key Moves is supported by a holistic set of strategies drawn across seven theme areas – People, Culture, Movement and Accessibility, Land Use and Activity, Built Environment, Natural Environment, and Governance.
Together, these Key Moves and their strategies will underpin all aspects of the City’s growth and development.
From 10 June to 19 July, the City of Perth will be engaging with its community and stakeholders to obtain feedback regarding the draft Strategy.
