Consultation concluded on Friday 29 May 2020. Please keep an eye on this page for future updates.

A Strategy to meet the future housing needs of our growing community.

The Local Housing Strategy (Strategy) is a future plan to ensure we can meet the growing needs of everyone in our community, from our young families, to the aged.

Did you know that...

  • At our 2019 Innovative Housing Expo, 96% of respondents agreed they would consider living in an alternative housing type, including: tiny homes on wheels, cooperative housing, micro housing, modular housing and co-living?
  • Between 2020 and 2036, we will likely need approximately 500 – 900 additional aged care beds in the City of Kalamunda
  • The largest location of population growth will be in the Forrestfield area.
  • For example, we will see the biggest increase in population change for seniors aged 70-84 and parents and homebuilders.
  • 50% of residents commute or travel outside of the City for work.

Check out our infographic which gives a snapshot of housing and future trends in the City of Kalamunda!

The Strategy looks to increase the quality and diversity in housing types, support more sustainable features, promote active transport and provide safe active streets for residents.

Reviewed every five years, the Strategy is also an opportunity to identify opportunities for improvement in the current local planning framework.

We are seeking community feedback to ensure that the new Local Housing Strategy is developed with best interests of the community at heart. Your feedback is important to enhance our understanding and to ensure that the Strategy also considers our community's needs.
