This submission has been prepared by the Committee for Perth with assistance from members of our Reshaping Working Group. In our response that follows we have relied on our previous research, Towards a Bright Future which outlined outcomes for Perth if it continued on a ‘Business as Usual Scenario’ versus the articulation of a ‘Bright Future Scenario’. As part of this report we made 20 recommendations for Government to action, which we believe align closely with many of the strategies in the Draft Perth and Peel @ 3.5million document. In our submission we address some of the key issues Perth and Peel face as a region growing to a population of 3.5 million people.

The government’s vision document and sub-regional structure plans identify significant strategic priorities that we believe are imperative to creating a Perth and Peel region which will deliver opportunities, lifestyle choices and amenity for its residents as it grows to accommodate 3.5 million people. By acknowledging the challenges Perth faces as the population continues to increase, the document also provides an evidence base for the specific strategies identified to address them.

The comments provided below are in response to specific concerns or provide feedback in regard to certain sections of either the over-arching Perth and Peel @ 3.5million report or a specific Sub-regional Planning Framework.

Feedback on the following:
  • Perth 2050 – The Need for Change
  • Growth Patterns – Our Choice
  • Economy
  • Adapting to Our Climate Change
