The Alkimos Eglinton District Project incorporates collaborative planning and infrastructure development between the three major landowners and their development partners within the Alkimos Eglinton coastal locale some 40 kilometres north of the Perth CBD. The AE Project commenced in 1996 and initially undertook an innovative master planning exercise to contemporise the Metropolitan Region Scheme for the district and to facilitate the relocation of the Alkimos Waste Water Treatment Plant. Through a series of stakeholder workshops the district structure plan was endorsed by the Western Australian Planning Commission in September 2009. This plan sets down the primary land-use components for the Alkimos Eglinton area, embracing around 2,700 hectares for an anticipated residential population of 60,000 people (around 25,000 dwelling units) and includes the Alkimos regional centre, the Eglinton district centre, three coastal activity nodes, a marina and over eight kilometres of coastline.

This year we have project managed the completion of the district Developer Contribution Plan with a total cost of around $75M delivering facilities over the next 20 years.


The Midland Redevelopment is a Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) project area. Woodsome Management is engaged as the overall Project Director for the project and provides serviced in relation to project delivery as well as the overall health of the project.

The Midland Redevelopment Project area is located within the Midland Strategic Activity Centre some 17km from the Perth CBD. The redevelopment is focused primarily upon the remediation, subdivision and activation of the former State Government Railway Workshops land (a state heritage listed site), as well as parts of the Midland Town Centre.

This is a complex project with multiple layers of assessments, approvals, monitoring, stakeholder engagement, consultant management, works packages and adaptive responses to economic, social and environmental changes. Woodsome Management is pleased to work closely with the MRA as Project Director in developing and delivering the goals and objectives of this important State Government project.


We have the capability to create new or review existing Developer Contributions Plans or Schemes [DCS]. In conjunction with HillPDA (Melbourne) we can develop bespoke DCS models for a diverse range of projects. Our approach is based on establishing the following key inputs:

  • The planning framework which covers any potential DCS area;
  • The land use development date including density, development timing, population forecasts and ultimate use;
  • The infrastructure works list including civil, landscaping, environmental and community facilities;
  • The Unit of Charge;
  • The Cost Apportionment of the DCS cost items;
  • Scheme Operation; and
  • Alignment with State Planning policy 3.6.

Through our partners HillPDA we have the capability of benchmarking against national leading practice. Our current and recently completed DCS projects in Perth include schemes for Alkimos Eglinton ($80M), Forrestfield ($15M), Wungong ($260M), and the North Forrestfield Train Station Precinct.





Mt Lawley Pty Ltd has owned land in the northern part of Ellenbrook for over 100 years. Around 12 hectares is located within the Charlottes Vineyard precinct and adjoins the Ellenbrook Joint Venture landholding. This land has been developed as residential essentially as infill. The land is perceived by the existing residents to be a part of Charlottes Vineyard Village, with the expectation of development according with the existing suburban fabric in terms of scale, form and density.

We have delivered the project on time and on budget.


The Eglinton (Eglinton) Project is the development of some 600 hectares of land 50km north of Perth. It includes the development of a rail based town centre, several primary and high schools and an approved marina. Within the project landholding the first new community – Amberton has commenced development. When completed Eglinton will have a population of around 15,000 residents. A detailed structure planning exercise to guide future development is about to be updated with an activity centre plan to commence shortly on the Eglinton Town Centre. Project briefs are being developed for this work in order to be able to integrate the rail extension through the Eglinton Town Centre station precinct onto Yanchep.

We have recently project managed the federal environmental approvals for the landholding and contemporised the existing marina approval.


The new Amberton Master Planned Community (Amberton) is situated on 200 hectares 45kms north of Perth in the highly competitive north-west corridor. It is a joint venture between the Stockland Property Group and the local landowner and sits within the Alkimos Eglinton district. Ultimately it will deliver over 2000 homes and a resident population of over 6000 people including a school, neighbourhood centre and a range of sporting facilities. The development is underway having successfully delivered the first 800 lots and related infrastructure. The Amberton community is expected to be built out over the next 7-8 years.

We continue to work with the Stockland Property Group to deliver this new community.




Woodsome Management was the Project Manager for the construction of the start and finish towers for the 2000 metre rowing and kayaking course at the Champion Lakes Regatta Centre in the City of Armadale. These two and four level towers which include administration, judging, commentary and camera viewing levels designed to international competition standards provide world class facilities.


Acting on behalf of several landowners Marmion Avenue was extended around 8 kms through the Alkimos Eglinton district in Perth’s north west corridor ( and ultimately through to Yanchep Beach Road). As a part of the delivery we facilitated the creation of two sculptural elements at two key intersections marking the start of the place making for the area.


Through a proposed rezoning to allow for the creation of a rural residential demonstration community in Gidgegannup the landowner has a vision for an ecological link from John Forrest National Park through to Toodyay.
