Forced infill affects suburbs across Perth

The WA planning system has unfettered powers to approve any development without compensation for affected neighbours.

These powers have developed over time since 2011 to force infill into the established suburbs of Perth.  Most of the infill is blocks of high-rise flats built on the boundary on the neighbouring property.

Other inappropriate development approved with these unfettered powers include a McDonalds built near a school oval in Mandurah, new housing built in wetlands, and proposals to build high-rise flats on the Subiaco Oval Reserve which is needed for active sports space for the Bob Hawke College, the community and the WA Football Commission.

Our policies will target the WA planning system and remove these unfettered powers starting with a Royal Commission into the WA Planning Commission and the powers of the Minister for Planning.
