Perth outer suburbs in the mix

The mixed-use projects that have become a feature of the inner-city in recent years are now finding an echo in Perth’s outer suburbs, with infrastructure such as Metronet and revised planning frameworks paving the way for local councils to integrate more residential-commercial blended developments.

The state’s planning blueprint ‘Directions 2031 and Beyond’, which promotes ‘liveable, vibrant centres’ where people can work and reside in the same location could be one factor influencing the recent wave of developments.

The Urban Development Institute of Australia WA chief executive, Allison Hailes, says the rise of mixed-use projects marks a new phase in the wider city’s development.
