This submission on the Infrastructure Western Australia Discussion Paper has been prepared by the Committee for Perth with assistance from its Reshaping Working Group & Hashtag Perth Steering Committee following a briefing by Infrastructure Western Australia staff.

Our summary of infrastructure priorities identified are:
  • The development of World Centre for Indigenous Culture in central Perth as a living centre of First Nations People.
  • Develop innovation clusters with an anchor industry.
  • Invest in public transport infrastructure to connect key hubs/clusters of employment, innovation and higher density living, initially focusing on six key hubs: Subiaco, UWA/QEII, Curtin/Bentley Technology Park, Fremantle, Murdoch and Joondalup.
  • Provide a long-term plan for public and active transport in the Perth and Peel region supported by political commitment, funding, and cohesive action by State and local Government.
  • Invest in improving amenity and services to support inner city living.
  • Establish the Perth City Centre as an education precinct.
  • Implement ‘smart city’ initiatives for infrastructure efficiency and improved liveability and urban competitiveness.
