PERTH’S FIRST MULTI AGE PRECINCT (MAP)

We are excited to announce that the WA Premier, the Honourable Colin Barnett, launched Perth’s first MAP on Thursday December 15th 2016.  It is being constructed at Claremont on the Park development around the Claremont football oval.

This is a project planned and overseen by LandCorp, The Western Australian Government’s land and development agency.  When complete, Claremont on the Park will include over 750 homes for  approximately 2,000 residents, as well as a vibrant mix of retail and commercial opportunities arranged around Claremont Oval. LandCorp’s master planned  precinct incorporates a development by Blackburne featuring approximately 140 apartments, along with a supermarket, shops, café and a service provider (Amana Living) who will provide lifestyle and aged care services to precinct residents and nearby local communities.  Read more…

  1. Intergenerational planning and vision is great, as it sustains all people. We also need, added to that vision and planning, people of all abilities. This means more than ramps and lifts, it means truly diverse dwellings.

  2. I read with interest the article in today’s West Australian Newspaper titled “Boomers Lobby for new way of living”.
    In a response, I would like to comment that to get a grip on what us “Baby “Boomers” want in retirement living can best be exemplified by what National Lifestyle Villages offer ….. without the costs and unacceptable locations.
    We want self sustainable living on the ground with enough room to swing a medium sized cat. We need independence and a reasonable amount of space in addition to very necessary support services and entertainment close by.
    We have spent several mont in research and the (aforementioned) suppliers offer the most acceptable lifestyle.

  3. Thanks you for this innovative site and not for profit organisation – will follow it with interest and probably become a member. Also thank to Bob for the information I will definitely look into the National Lifestyle Villages – it is so good to share information
