Comments attributed to Planning and Lands Minister John Carey:

“The Cook Government is committed to supporting projects that help accelerate and broaden the availability of accommodation supply in Western Australia.

“The Infrastructure Development Fund covers costs up to $10,000 for each residential apartment, to help alleviate some of the upfront constraints in connecting water, wastewater and electricity services.

“Construction is underway on projects that will deliver 564 of those new apartments and another nine projects are expected to commence construction shortly.

“This Government continues to work with service providers, local governments and industry to unlock and create a future pipeline of medium-to-high density infill developments.”
