The South Metropolitan Peel sub-region comprises the cities of Armadale, Cockburn, Gosnells, Kwinana, Mandurah and Rockingham and the shires of Murray, Serpentine-Jarrahdale and Waroona and covers an area of almost 5000 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 staging and sequencing of future development.

Key facts:

  • the population will increase significantly from 523,406 (2011) to 1.26 million (2050)
  • there is sufficient urban and employment  land to accommodate this growth
  • an additional  302,177 dwellings will be required
  • the area will need approximately 437,725 (2050) jobs, up from 143,971 (2011) 
  • economic self-sufficiently (living and working in the same sub-region) will increase to 74 per cent by 2050
  • more than 51 per cent of the land in the sub-region is reserved parks and recreation or State forest.
