Town of Cambridge Local Housing Strategy


The purpose of this project was to identify housing typologies and planning opportunities for the Town of Cambridge in order to meet the Council’s housing objectives for a target of an additional 3000 homes by 2031, as set out in the draft Central Metropolitan Perth Sub Regional Strategy. CODA’s responsibility was to deliver a series of housing typologies that demonstrate positive and achievable development opportunities for the Town.

Our preparatory work underpins all our design decisions by building a thorough and astute understanding of place. We have achieved this through research and exploration of the impacts and influences at a statutory level for historic, existing and forecast conditions.

For each of the residential precincts of City Beach, Floreat, Wembley and West Leederville we looked at the opportunities and constraints of the existing housing stock in terms of type, form and character as well as streetscapes and local context. Each of these four precincts has its own distinct character and form and it is these differences that ultimately determined the pervading sense of place for our final typologies.
