WAPC Draft Position Statement Released

Shelter WA welcomes the WA Planning Commission (WAPC) draft Position Statement for housing on lots less than 100 square metres.

The Commission said the statement is a response to the growing interest and demand for more medium density housing options.

More and better quality medium density housing provides choice and diversity to a growing and changing population. It can also offer more affordable housing options and promote walkable communities close to work, shops and public transport.  

“Western Australia needs greater housing affordability and diversity of choice to respond to our changing demographic needs,” Shelter WA CEO Michelle Mackenzie said.

“The creation of smaller lot sizes, together with this State’s investment in Metronet, provides the opportunity to deliver new opportunities to drive land use changes to provide more affordable housing choice.”
