Towards a sustainable city in a biodiversity hotspot.
The Perth-Peel region lies at the heart of one of the most ecologically rich places on Earth; yet the prevailing model of urban development is a pathway toward extinction of native wildlife and is delivering an expensive, unsustainable and unlivable city. A new model of planning and development is urgently required, and research shows that Perth residents are ready to embrace this change.
Piers will discuss how Perth can be transformed to a sustainable 21st century city that allows the preservation of its unique natural heritage while improving the quality of life of its residents.
What Perth Wants: Environmentally Sustainable Apartments
A rare partnership was formed between an environmental protection group and a leading Perth property developer to better understand community sentiment towards density and apartment style buildings within a 10km radius of Perth.
The What Perth Wants market research shows that Perth residents are ready to embrace change and development that delivers a more environmentally sustainable, more affordable and more liveable city. The research indicates strong support for relaxing building height limits if these buildings are environmentally friendly, and reduce the need for car dependence – being primarily located on or around public transport nodes.
Chiara will discuss these findings and the journey Psaros has taken to disrupt the industry and lift the bar in environmentally considered apartment buildings.
