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.
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.
