Introduction

Introduced in 2018, Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million is Perth’s current planning scheme and intends to promote sustainability through the:

  • Protection of natural environments, agricultural areas, open spaces and heritage sites
  • Creation of infill targets (47%) and continued consolidation, making the city more compact
  • Creation and revitalisation of activity centres which are mixed use commercial zones that include offices, retail, higher-density housing, entertainment, civic/community, education and medical services
  • Creation of economic development through activity centres
  • Promotion of housing diversity and affordability
  • Public transport corridors and the promotion of Transit Orientated Developments

 

Transit Orientated Developments (TODs) are a major priority within Directions 2031. A Transit Oriented Development refers to communities with high quality public transit services, mainly around train and tram stops. TOD developments have good walkability, are compact and have mixed land use. Consider successful TOD projects when planning your site. A very good local example of a TOD is Subi Centro, and internationally the U.S. city of Portland (Oregon) is well recognised. The ongoing development around the Claremont Train Station exhibits elements of a TOD.
