Development Pressures And Heritage In The Perth Central Business District, 1950-90
This article examines the remaking of Perth's Central Business District (CBD) during the 1950-90 period. It traces the establishment of a modernist development ethos in Perth's planning, outlines the inadequacy of the City's planning regulations, and analyses the impact on St George's Terrace, the city's main commercial thoroughfare. The City Council was largely incapable of restraining excessive development and the extension of its system of plot ratios encouraged manipulation to increase the height of developments. Several important historic buildings were demolished because there were no legal means of safeguarding the city's heritage until 1990. Copyright 2009 The Author.
