Ideas for Brabham
This discussion paper compiles ideas generated at a workshop hosted by Peet, The Department of Communities and the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities on 13 and 14 June 2018. These ideas focus on the Brabham development project in the north east urban growth corridor in Perth. This development can provide a practical example of Perth’s commitment to become Australia’s most water sensitive city, and this discussion paper outlines on-ground initiatives to realise this outcome. More specifically, this discussion paper address the need for more innovative development approaches that combine water management and urban design to create sustainable and liveable communities in locations challenged by high groundwater tables.
