Two Storey Medium Density Study Tour

On Friday 13th November 2015 CLE were pleased to have the opportunity to host the Chairman of the WAPC, members of the Statutory Planning Committee, the Director General and Department of Planning staff on a study  tour of the North East and North West corridors to look specifically at two storey, medium density, single and multiple dwellings, as well as mixed use development. We appreciate and thank the representatives from both ABN and BGC for their involvement in the tour and valuable background information on the products. It was an extremely informative day with much learnt concerning the delivery of single medium density dwellings & smaller scale apartments, the opportunities emerging for alternative housing construction and latest housing trends.
