Draft Perth and Peel Green Growth Plan for 3.5 million

Nuytsia floribunda - Western Australia's Christmas treeThe Perth and Peel regions are projected to grow to 3.5 million people by 2050 – an increase of almost 70 per cent on our current population. Supporting this growth and delivering an efficient and liveable city while protecting our unique natural environment is a significant challenge. The State Government has prepared the draft Perth and Peel Green Growth Plan for 3.5 million (Green Growth Plan) to meet this challenge.

The State Government is seeking public comment on the draft Perth and Peel Green Growth Plan for 3.5 million suite of documents. To view the draft documents, please visit www.dpc.wa.gov.au/greengrowthplan

The draft documents are available for public comment and all submissions must be received by 5pm on Friday 13 May 2016.

All enquiries should be directed to the Department of the Premier and Cabinet:

In August 2015, the EPA released its interim advice on the implications for the environment of the Perth and Peel regions from an increasing population. The interim advice contributes to the Western Australian Government’s Green Growth Plan and provides the EPA’s advice on the Western Australian Planning Commission’s Perth and Peel @ 3.5 Million report and four draft planning frameworks for the Perth-Peel sub-regions.
