South Perth
Hi-rise is fine if there has been proper planning and community consultation, but not in areas where medium density has been approved and now John Day's JDAP are bulldozing there way through to approve anything as is happening in South Perth. Developers should not be deciding on an ad hoc basis what our city will look like and with no regard to infrastructure, traffic or community needs.

Mount Claremont
The new Swanbourne apartments DO NOT meet criteria such close to transport and infrastructure. This 8-floor high building is strategically located on a hill as far away from shops and transport (a bus goes near by) as it could be. No pets will mean most residents will drive and not walk (to the shops, work etc) and clog up an already busy Alfred Road. "Bondy's" tower overlooking Cottesloe Golf course - if many of us tried to object to Council we were told under no uncertain terms that we were wasting our time! Developers over ride democracy far too easily in Perth. High rise belong in valleys not hills!!

Hey guys, to become a real city it need a city center it couldn't like now here a little bit there a little bit. And what makes it a city is super high and high density in the hubs. Who don't like it can sell his land take the UTE and go up north or down south, space enough. The planning and development are in the right direction. The town likely structures has to be pushed out of the metro area boundaries if you want a growth, no way around.

East Perth
Local governments have a significant influence on where development occurs through the local town planning scheme. Yet a number of local governments have not reviewed their town planning schemes for many years. Developers will build where it is economically viable and permissible. I'd suggest many local governments need to review their town planning schemes to bring them into the modern era and in accordance with the Directions 2031 planning strategy.
