With Perth’s population having just hit 2 million, plans are in progress to cater for the expected 3.5 million population by 2050. Reducing the urban sprawl and introducing high rise living for existing suburbs is one of the main focuses of the Barnett Government’s Perth Future Plan, but limiting the city boundaries is not on the agenda.
Perth Future Plan = More High Rise?
Some of the many ways the Barnett Government is looking at to increase the amount of available land for high rise building is to offer tax incentives for older households to free up land for redevelopment, as well as encouraging councils to offer publicly owned land for redevelopment and asking them support higher density rezoning.
A Perth Brand?
Lord Mayor of Perth Lisa Scaffidi is pushing for Perth to be established as a brand and the Perth brand to be marketed locally and worldwide. She suggests marketing based on Perth’s technology industry as the ‘Silicon Beach of the Southern hemisphere’.

A & A Plastic Strip Curtains
Perth is definitely growing fast! We know because we are driving around it everyday providing quotes and installing outdoor blinds. All this is leading to tighter living spaces that require good design and fore-thought.
Many of our clients are turning back patios into actual rooms using ziptrak blinds. You have the flexibility of pulling the blinds down when it’s too hot, windy or rainy, which creates a room… or pulling them up to let in the breeze and create an open area. Call us to find out more on 9331 5199.
