Navigating residential intensification in existing urban and suburban areas is perhaps the most significant town planning challenge for Perth in the modern era.
Balancing the needs and desires of the local community, future population growth, quality public realm and built form design is essential to maintaining and creating great places to live, and requires collaboration between government and non-government stakeholders alike.
This breakfast forum will focus on the challenges faced by local government in implementing the infill agenda, with contemporary examples provided by:
- Penny Taylor, Mayor of the City of Subiaco, who will speak on the significant work undertaken by the City in reviewing their Local Planning Strategy and the Local Planning Scheme, and the challenges of balancing infill development with community expectations; and
- Brett Cammell, A/Director Planning and Development at the Town of Cambridge, who will speak on the highly collaborative work in preparing the Town’s new Local Planning Strategy, and the next steps in responsibly implementing housing growth within the Town.
Our speakers will be joined by panellists Donna Shaw, Manager Development & Place – Town of Bassendean and Rohan Miller, Planning Director – Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage for a Q&A session following the presentations.
