Entered by Satterley Property Group and the Department of Housing, Brighton Estate won its category at the August 31 awards night.

Judges said they were impressed by the effort put into making it a thriving community, not just a dormitory suburb.

‘The Brighton development will eventually be home to more than 25,000 people, and includes six schools, a train station, community facilities and a broad range of commercial and residential options,’ the judges said.

‘The residential component is split into a number of internal neighbourhood precincts each with their own individual character and identity.

‘Not only does Brighton provide a wide range of lot types, densities and price points, it also includes a large number of community initiatives, including Brighton House, a community garden and the Brighton Shed.’

Housing Minister Bill Marmion said the win was testament to the department’s ability to adapt to market forces and respond to WA’s diverse housing needs.

‘These developments were designed to meet the needs of a range of West Australians, including singles, young families, seniors and key workers,’ Mr Marmion said.

‘The department is working with the private and not-for-profit sectors to develop innovative solutions that deliver a diverse range of dwellings from small units to larger family homes.’
