As Australia’s fifth fastest-growing Council, the City of Wanneroo understands the urgency of future planning. Over the last quarter-century the City has experienced major residential development and population growth. These trends are certainly not slowing down.
City of Wanneroo resident numbers are presently growing by 8,000 each year. In addition, the number of building approvals being processed are at an all-time high.
At the same time, the Cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup have the lowest employment self-sufficiency levels in the Perth and Peel regions. To tackle this, the City of Wanneroo aims to create 100,000 new local jobs to cater for its population growth.
The RailSmart Wanneroo Planning project plays an important role in job creation.
RailSmart will essentially future-proof urban development and land-use planning. Urban design around the new Metronet train stations will have the very best opportunity to be dynamic, active spaces, filled with soul. RailSmart planning reduces investment risk and works to create local jobs for local residents.
