• WA another step closer to receiving its promised City Deal

    New


    REIWA welcomes the Federal Cities Minister Alan Tudge’s commitment to get Perth’s City Deal finalised over the next 12 months, which will mean Western Australia will receive its fair share of funding to meet the needs of the growing population.

    REIWA President Damian Collins said WA’s City Deal has been at a stand-still for over 12 months, being surpassed by Hobart, Darwin, Adelaide and South East Queensland.

    “With Perth forecasted to become a city of 3.5 million by 2050, a City Deal is essential to the prosperity of our state. Not only will it ensure Perth remains attractive to tourists, residents and businesses, but it will provide much-needed funding and collaboration between all levels of government to ensure we can meet the needs of our growing population.

    “It will also deliver essential funding for infrastructure projects, which will provide a major boost to our local economy and help create thousands of jobs during construction. 

     “While it is disappointing to see that it could take another 12 months to come into fruition, REIWA has been a strong advocate for WA’s City Deal, and looks forward to seeing the commitment by all levels of government to ensure land use policies promote infill development and the sustainable growth of Perth,” Mr Collins said.
