Economic development projects and conversations are frequently based on magical thinking and 30-year-old industrial attraction formulas – rather than data about how the real world works now (or how data-trends indicate it will work in the future).
The RailSmart Planning Wanneroo project is a solid step towards having local access to predictive land-use planning models which allow for sustainable, SMART cities.
Smart planning focuses on connectivity, and brings innovative and flexible approaches to job creation and liveability.
There is no doubt that City of Wanneroo suburbs can benefit from RailSmart Planning which gives greater investor certainty and addresses the needs of a growing population.
