Peet Limited partnered with the WA Housing Authority to create The Village at Wellard and deliver a full catchment, purpose-built, greenfield transit-oriented community.
The detailed design of the project occurred concurrently with the detailed design of the Perth to Mandurah Railway line.
Originally, the Wellard Train Station did not form part of the State Government’s plans for Stage 1 of The Village at Wellard, however extensive negotiations and detailed analysis resulted in the early delivery of Wellard Train Station.
This was achieved through:
Integrating the Wellard Train Station with the broader design of the estate has been key to providing a strong movement network between public open spaces, the surrounding bushland, schools and the Village Centre. By promoting connectivity through design, the development promotes a healthy, active community that’s less reliant on cars. Peet Limited continues to work with key stakeholders, including the City of Kwinana, State and Federal Government departments, and the local community to promote healthy and active lifestyles within The Village at Wellard and the broader community.
Since the project’s inception, several successful initiatives have included:
Each of these initiatives, integrated with the urban design framework, has engaged a community that prioritises physical activity and healthy living. The WA Housing Authority and Peet Limited are committed to activating the Village Centre through healthy living principles, community capacity building and economic revitalisation based on access and connectivity.
