It is positive to see that developers like Blackburne are doing quite well in the current economy whereas Finbar are struggling - clearly buyers are demanding more from developers. They can't just build anything and expect it to sell...

Ridiculous that they're only forecasting 8300 new dwellings by 2050.

688 apartments in 33 years, wow!

That's a whole 20 per year. 20! Boom times ahead.

Thank you Sue, you're a truly inspirational leader.

“The strength of developer interest and activity in South Perth and specifically within the station precinct has demonstrated a high level of confidence in the market for high-density residential development.”
*has* being the operative word. until a year or so ago, when cosp killed it all. breathtaking hypocrisy.

Perth’s western suburbs the fastest in apartment growth
Shane Wright, Economics Editor
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 8:57AM

Construction work at Claremont on the Park.

The Cottesloe-Claremont area is the apartment lifestyle centre of the country with a new report showing record levels of townhouses and apartments going up across the area.

In a report to be released today by Bankwest, the Cottesloe-Claremont area had the biggest increase of medium-density housing of any part of the country over the past 12 months.

Up to the end of March there had been a 43.1 per cent increase in the number of units and apartments approved for construction.

The Claremont on the Park development, which includes 750 new homes, has been the prime driver behind the area, which is out-pacing every other part of the country.

It’s not just the western suburbs proving to be attractive to buyers in a soft property market.

The Melville area was found by Bankwest to be the third-fastest growing part of the county for medium-density housing, with approvals up by 35.7 per cent over the past year.

The strong growth in Cottesloe, Claremont and Melville was in stark contrast to the rest of WA with medium-density approvals down by 27 per cent over the same period. Approvals for standalone homes fell by 23 per cent.

Bankwest broker sales general manager Stewart Saunders said a slowing in WA’s population growth was driving the overall fall in approvals.

“This pronounced, short-term drop is likely due the slowing of the State’s population growth to 0.7 per cent during this period, a soft property market, lots of rental properties on the market and corresponding falling rental rates. The economic downturn is having a noticeable effect,” he said.

The report follows the minutes of the latest Reserve Bank board meeting at which official interest rates were held steady.

ANZ economist David Plank said the minutes suggested the Reserve was increasingly concerned about the level of debt held by households and that house prices were failing to moderate fast enough in the key Sydney and Melbourne markets.

Percentage growth will seem huge as they are coming from a low base, but by quantity it is incredibly low and i would say a bit of data mining to call it "out-pacing the rest of australia".

For some broader context on dwelling approvals in WA based on June ABS data:

- in the last 12 months, apartments and units made up 16.3% of all approvals
- 3,269 apartment and unit approvals state wide in 12 months
- most recent annual peak was June 2015, 5,732 apartment and unit approvals
- that means apartment and unit approvals are down 43% from peak
- annualised overall approvals peaked at 32,973 in December 2014
- they bottomed in May 2017, 19,896
- as of June, 20,053

July data will confirm if we are passing the bottom of the approvals cycle, but all signs are looking like that is the case.

That's an interesting set of papers by bankwest.

I note Canberra leads the nation for higher density approvals, with a whopping 77 per cent of new approvals (80 per cent last year) consisting of apartments and townhouses.

i download direct from ABS each month, look at tables 22-29

http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/[email protected]?OpenDocument

I have a few excel macros that do the heavy sorting for me. Usually i publish it on a blog, but have been a little slack of late. Here's a link to my May writeup, which has a few charts showing the history.

I can't figure out if a grouped dwelling would be classified as a 'New House' along with single houses, or if they would be classified as a 'Other Residential Building' along with multiple dwellings.

anyway: http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/meisu...08.2017&Latest

City of Swan is developing land a hell of a lot closer to the city than many other councils.
