Peet and the Department of Communities are developing a new greenfield estate in Brabham in Perth’s north-east. The estate is expected to yield 3,300 dwellings for about 8,910 people.
To prepare for this growth Creating Communities has been appointed to support the development of a vibrant community which takes advantage of the many opportunities, groups and organisations offered in the region.
We conducted interviews with key stakeholders and community members to understand what they are already doing in the area and ran our Creating Communities 3D co-design process with City of Swan and stakeholders. Together we delved into the region’s heritage, its distinctiveness, its many attractions and local groups. We also collaborated on developing the way forward, developing a compelling vision for the future which will leverage heritage, local jewels and the emerging rich diversity in the area.
This process resulted in the Brabham Community and Economic Development Plan which will guide community development and place activation in Brabham.
