Green dream: examining the barriers to an innovative stormwater and public open space structure plan on Perth’s suburban fringe

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Wungong Landscape Structure Plan (LSP), currently under construction on the fringes of Perth, embodies a number of innovations with respect to Public Open Space (POS) provision. These include the proposition of a holistic, interconnected POS system that transcends individual property ownership, an integrated POS and stormwater management system, and the use of a POS system as the primary guidelines for development. There has been significant resistance to these innovations from within the urban design and planning disciplines, the land development industry, and from regulatory bodies. This paper examines these various barriers to implementation to inform future suburban projects that attempt related innovations.
