Transforming Perth

This report examines the potential number of new dwellings that could be accommodated in medium and high density scenarios in existing and often underutilised areas along Perth’s Activity Corridors. The broader purpose was to explore the opportunity to transform (or in many cases return) what are currently congested and car dominated roads into a vibrant series of High Streets and urban villages that are attractive places to live and work.

The Study builds on the ground-breaking Transforming Australian Cities report (2009) which found the potential to house an additional 1 – 2.5 million people along Melbourne’s existing tram and priority bus lanes, in an area equivalent to only 7% of Melbourne’s urban footprint. It also draws on the exemplary city-scale planning, visioning and engagement processes developed under South Australia’s Integrated Design Commission
