    • EOIs sought for 20ha Treeby development
    • Site expected to yield in excess of 300 residential lots
    • Less than five minutes from Cockburn Central train station

    The Liberal National Government is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from developers to work with the Housing Authority to deliver an affordable land and housing project in the City of Cockburn.


    Housing Minister Brendon Grylls today announced an EOI for development of the 20-hectare site on Ghostgum Avenue and Armadale Road, Treeby (formerly Banjup).


    "The State Government is seeking to harness the creativity and experience of an accomplished and integrated developer or consortium to achieve its vision and objectives for this project," Mr Grylls said.


    "The site has the potential to deliver in excess of 300 residential lots to support growth and demand for affordable housing in Perth's south-western corridor.


    "This is an attractive opportunity for the sector to work with the Government to deliver a well-connected and liveable community with excellent access to amenities and services."


    The successful proponent will gain access to a well-located site and the opportunity to deliver a sizeable, affordable land and housing development in a suburb less than five minutes from Cockburn Central Station and a 20 minute drive from the Perth CBD.


    "The Treeby project will increase the supply of quality housing around key transport infrastructure and activity centres, helping to lower living costs and reduce traffic congestion," the Minister said.


    "It will contribute substantially to the Liberal National Government's target of 30,000 affordable homes for people on low-to-moderate incomes by 2020, of which more than 24,500 have already been delivered."


    The Housing Authority is undertaking a two-stage procurement process to identify a suitable development partner (or consortium), with EOI closing on January 18, 2017.
