Meeting the needs of a rapidly growing population

Did you know that by 2031 the Peel region could be home to over 200,000 people according to research from Regional Development Australia? That’s an increase of more than 80,000 residents in under 15 years, making it one of the country’s fastest-growing regions according to a recent report in the Mandurah Mail.

Mandurah’s population alone has exploded from 30,000 to 90,000 in the last three decades with residents flocking to the area to take advantage of its enviable coastal location, natural beauty relaxed lifestyle and close-knit community.

The State Government has also set the City a target of finding a minimum of 14,510 extra dwellings by 2050 to cater for the expected influx.

Creating sustainable, liveable communities of the future one of the keys to accommodating such a fast-growing population. Peel residents now and in the not-too-distant future require new and diverse housing options, as well as greater access to schools, shopping centres, healthcare and recreational facilities.

They’ll also need local jobs. To provide this, our regional economy must grow and diversify. Tourism is one industry at the heart of Peel’s long-term economic growth plan. Already, close to 700,000 domestic visitors stay overnight in Peel each year, contributing some $774 million to the local economy. But to cement Peel as a truly world-class tourism destination – something that will deliver new jobs and new possibilities – we need to think long-term and big picture.

What’s needed is a sensible, sustainable approach that balances the needs of a growing population with stringent environmental protection standards.

Point Grey is a community where these values work in harmony. And one that recognises that the region will continue to grow and provide opportunities for locals and visitors alike.

Flanked by the Peel Inlet and Harvey Estuary, Point Grey is expected to be home to 7000 new and existing Peel residents and includes a 300-berth onshore marina, schools, tourism facilities, public boat ramps and retail outlets.

Every aspect of the project has been reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Authority, ensuring that all works are managed responsibly and without adverse impact.

Designed by Point Grey Development Company Pty Ltd (PGDC), part of one of Australia’s oldest listed property developers, Tian An Australia, Point Grey is a true community of the future – sensible, sustainable and liveable. It will provide diverse housing options for a growing population, and create 4000 jobs during construction and a further 1400 permanent jobs thereafter.

Once completed, Point Grey will generate widespread social and economic benefits to the people of Peel, helping the region become an internationally-known tourism destination and providing much-needed housing, boating and recreation facilities.
