Who we are

DevelopmentWA is the State Government’s central development agency, operating across Western Australia with a diverse portfolio of industrial, commercial and residential projects. We operate under the Western Australian Land Authority, Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority and Hope Valley-Wattleup Redevelopment legislation.

Formed through the merging of LandCorp and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, our collective experience is delivering sustainable communities, prosperous industry and resilient regions right across Western Australia to help shape our state’s future.

These include transformative projects like the creation of new cities and communities, precinct-scale urban renewal and major projects such as the master-planning of Alkimos, the redevelopment of Elizabeth Quay, Yagan Square, the Scarborough Foreshore and the revitalisation of regional Western Australia from Broome in the Kimberley through to Albany in the Great Southern.

Next chapters include the creation of a new tourism destination Ocean Reef Marina, the renewal of the East Perth Power Station, Subi Oval and Princess Margaret Hospital redevelopments as well as development of the State’s premier industrial region – the Western Trade Coast and the establishment and support of agri-business at Peel Business Park.

By working closely with government, partners, industry and the community, we are able provide a bridge between private industry and the Western Australian Government to secure sustainable community outcomes.


We are uniquely placed to deliver projects which help shape our State’s future.

Our role is to develop land for living and land for working. This work supports the social and economic prosperity of Western Australia.

Central to this work is the identification, design and implementation of major land and infrastructure projects. This involves undertaking long-term, complex and challenging projects and collaboration with many different stakeholders to deliver the best outcomes for the State.

Work with private and public sector partners is managed using an integrated development approach and has delivered many successful communities and projects around Western Australia.

Our overall objective is to identify and respond to Government planning directives while sustaining Western Australia's economic and employment growth long into the future. We support the State Government's planning polices and partner with other agencies and departments to deliver land for living and jobs today, and for decades to come.
