Guiding Perth’s Growth: A Regional Perspective


This article examines historic and current regional planning efforts undertaken in the Perth, Australia metropolitan region that have defined its current development form. Using case study analysis, the article discusses the major plans that have influenced the region, environmental constraints to urban development, corridor planning techniques, and future planning ini- tiatives. Key to the Perth context is the primarily British-style planning process that is used in Western Australia. Findings reveal that corridor planning will continue to provide the primary regional planning frame- work, and planning in the Perth region will take a more interdisciplinary approach with respect to environmental concerns.
