Event overview

Perth is now recognised as having one of the biggest urban sprawls in the world, which, if left unchecked, will extend 270km from Lancelin to Myalup. With Perth’s population continuing to grow, a new way of living is needed to maximise the use of existing infrastructure, reduce traffic congestion and create productive, sustainable and connected communities.

To achieve this vision, LandCorp will unveil a 20 year project that will be one of the biggest urban infill projects ever undertaken in Australia, and will create a new, compact urban community of 12,000 people.

CEDA welcomes Frank Marra, CEO of LandCorp, to deliver an exclusive insight on this major development, and a panel of experts who will share their visions on how we will be living in the future.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
