WALK THIS WAY: Properties in walkable suburbs are worth more than those that aren’t.

Walking the walk a challenge for Perth

The prevailing attitude against high-rise development could hold Perth back from becoming a truly liveable city.

I am pleased to read there is discussion about Walkable Cities but there has been no mention of the off site effect of urban planning and the loss of agricultural land. WA has already lost the use of agricultural land with development down to Rockingham and I am gravely concerned about the spread of development into the Swan Valley. We all want our own space to live but if we want to feed ourselves without food being imported from interstate or overseas we have to look into our own backyard and protect what agricultural land we have now. I don't believe governments of any persuasion will make the hard decision to put a line in the sand and create an urban boundary. We the people have to have the will and say enough is enough and start going up and not out. While you enjoy your next meal, please consider where your food comes from.
