Support for South Perth high rise

A snap poll of residents in South Perth has revealed strong support for development in the area, despite activism against the high-rise project plans.

South Perth has become Perth’s most divisive planning flashpoint, with developers clashing with resident groups over the scale of apartment projects allowed in the area.
