The North-West sub-region comprises the cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo and covers approximately 785 square kilometres.

The draft framework considers where future homes and jobs will be located; what community and social infrastructure will be required; better integrated use of existing infrastructure; protection of important environmental assets and critical services; and timelines for staging and sequencing of future development.
