The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) is a statutory authority of the Government of Western Australia. It was established on 1 January 2012 pursuant to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority Act 2011 and reports to the Minister for Lands.[1][2]

The Act "... provide[s] for the planning and redevelopment of, and the control of development in certain land in the metropolitan region; and to establish a State agency with planning, development control, land acquisition and disposal and other functions in respect of that land."[3]

The MRA combines the responsibilities and projects formerly undertaken by former redevelopment authorities for East Perth, Subiaco, Midland and Armadale. Projects overseen by the MRA have included Elizabeth Quay, Perth City Link, Perth Cultural Centre and Yagan Square.[4] In 2019 the MRA will merge with LandCorp.[5][6]
