- Government initiates improvement plan announced for Redcliffe Station Precinct
- Improvement plan paves the way for the development of a more detailed planning framework for the area
- Area includes around nine hectares of strategically located State-owned land
- The Precinct has the potential to deliver a transit-oriented, mixed-use development including new housing options
The development of a planning framework to guide the regeneration of the Redcliffe Station Precinct (the Precinct) is a step closer, with the State Government today initiating an improvement plan for the area.
The Precinct is strategically located close to Perth's CBD and includes the recently opened Redcliffe Station, which connects commuters to Perth City in just 15 minutes via the METRONET Airport Line.
The Improvement Plan: Redcliffe Station Precinct (Improvement Plan 45) comprises an area of approximately 49 hectares - including approximately nine hectares of State-owned land - and is bound by Tonkin Highway, Great Eastern Highway, Coolgardie Avenue and the Perth Airport.
The Precinct has the potential to deliver transit-oriented, mixed-use development that includes diverse housing, public open space, accessible services and amenities, and employment opportunities.
Redevelopment of the Precinct will help support delivery of the 'Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million' framework, by consolidating future development in the metropolitan area through high-quality urban infill.
Improvement Plan 45 will enable the Western Australian Planning Commission to develop the necessary planning guidelines to plan for - and facilitate - future development of the Precinct.
