Future stages of Design WA

Work continues on the next stages of Design WA which focus on Neighbourhood Design SPP (revised Liveable Neighbourhoods), review of SPP 4.2 Activity Centres and Medium Density development. These future stages are critical in ensuring we cohesively improve the quality of our built environment.

Stage 2 - Neighbourhood Design, review of SPP 4.2 Activity Centres

Further work on Stage 2 will also consist of a Neighbourhood Design State Planning Policy policy (revised Liveable Neighbourhoods) and amendments to State Planning Policy 4.2 Activity Centres for Perth and Peel.

Medium density

A scoping paper has recently been completed on medium density, the so-called ‘Missing Middle’. The paper is based on information from the development industry, practitioners and local governments as well as conversations with some smaller scale developers and builders who work in this space.  

This project will officially commence in the third quarter of 2019, following WAPC endorsement.
