State Government advocates for quality design in WA

DWA Page Banner

Design WA is an initiative of the State Government to ensure that good design practice becomes imbedded in all new development across Western Australia. Delivered as a series of reforms to current design policy, the Department of Planning is seeking feedback on the initiative through until the 20th December.

From our perspective, it’s a relief to see the state government publically advocating for quality design in WA, particularly as it has come as a result of the recommendations put forward by #designperth! CODA worked with the Department on the multi-residential component of the reforms, reviewing a series of approved developments to see how they would stack up against the proposed new design codes.

More about Design WA can be found here, including a short film and downloadable versions of each policy.
