OGA Policy

The Office of the Government Architect establishes policy and practice frameworks to improve the quality of the built environment.

Design WA

Design WA is an important planning reform initiative to create an integrated suite of policy measures that encourage and enable better design outcomes from our planning system.

The OGA has championed this reform since 2005 and has worked in close collaboration with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage since 2013 to direct its development and implementation.
