We create successful communities where people want to live, work and visit

Welcome to our website. Our vision is to create dynamic, authentic and sustainable places across Perth. We transform urban spaces and meet the challenges of our city's future growth by creating strong communities while also encouraging sustainability and innovation in urban development. Through planning, development and place making – and in partnership with local government, communities and industry – we continue to revitalise communities and create a distinctive sense of place that is transforming our city and redefining key areas of metropolitan Perth for generations.
