Future plan for Perth

THE Future Perth strategic plan will play an integral part in shaping the CBD.

The Future Perth strategic plan is one of five initiatives outlined in the WA Planning Commission’s 1999 annual report.

Mr Kierath, explaining the proposals at a recent Property Council luncheon, said the capital city played an important role in the WA economy.

“The Future Perth project will examine the important characteristics and qualities of our capital city and region and look at how they may be enhanced as the city grows and changes,” he said.

As part of the Future Perth project, the planning commission will have involvement in Perth central area planning.

Other areas to be addressed include environmental and natural resource management and a plan for balanced economic and social outcomes.

“There is strong support for implementation of the new Environment and Natural Resources Committee, which will provide advice to the commission on environmental and resource matters which affect land use planning,” Mr Kierath said.

He said the name of the person who will represent businesses on the Central Perth Planning Commission was still to be released.

So, too, is the name of the residential representative.

The other three positions are held by WAPC chief Simon Holthouse, Planning Ministry CEO Gary Prattley and Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass.

While industry groups would like to see possibly more than one business representative on the committee, Mr Kierath is understood to be adamant that only one position is available.

Both the Property Council and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are vying for a position on the potentially influential committee.
