Please facilitate good design and encourage the use of sustainable technologies...

What we heard

You’d like:

  • Information on sustainable design and technologies and how you could apply them.
  • A directory of creatives for the area.
  • To know - is car share viable?


What we're doing (and some other ideas)

The CRC Centre for Low Carbon Living research is available online and provides some ideas: www.lowcarbonlivingcrc.com.au/partners/research/curtin-university-technology

Some good general information on creating more sustainable homes is here: www.yourhome.gov.au

We’re liaising with Development WA (‘DWA’ – previously known as ‘LandCorp’) with a view to DWA hosting a session where DWA and Curtin Uni might brief local landowners interested in sustainable design and technologies to help them understand how they can go about it themselves. This might be hosted in the soon to be opened Living Lab and could lead to further info sharing events.

The City has a policy encouraging the establishment of car share schemes however, to date, no operator has found a sufficient market to establish. This may change, and if so, the City’s policy outlines how it could support the scheme. Smaller schemes like ‘Car Next Door’ provide an alternative but are only establishing slowly.
