Topics

The Western Australian Government is planning for the future development of the Perth and Peel regions to accommodate a population of 3.5 million. The area supports significant environmental values and is part of an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot.

The purpose of the EPBC Act strategic assessment is to:
- Significantly reduce the need for project by project assessment under the EPBC Act in the Perth and Peel regions.
- Deliver an effective long term and strategic response to key environmental issues in the Perth and Peel regions, for example, Carnaby’s cockatoo and water quality in the Peel Harvey estuary.
- Provide greater certainty to industry as to which areas can be developed and what the obligations will be in terms of mitigation, including environmental offsets.
- Provide greater certainty in terms of long term land supply to meet the needs of a city of 3.5 million. 

Simon is the Director of Strategic Environmental Planning and Approvals at the Department of the Premier and Cabinet. He has led a number of whole of government projects in his 10 years at DPC including the Strategic Assessment and the Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy. Prior to this he delivered affordable housing projects at the former Department of Housing and Works. He enjoys working with government, industry and the community to deliver positive outcomes and solve complex problems.
