Community to View Canning Bridge Structure Plan

Media Release 24 October 2014
Canning Bridge
The latest Structure Plan and proposed Design Guidelines for a future Canning Bridge precinct has been released, and the Cities of South Perth and Melville invite residents to find out more at an information display at the Canning Bridge Library Lounge, Saturday 8 November 2014 from 1pm to 4pm. 

Created to guide the development of the Canning Bridge area, the Structure Plan has been developed collaboratively by the Cities of South Perth and Melville and is the next step towards implementing a vision for the precinct that was originally released in 2011. 

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty said the original vision had been developed in consultation with both the South Perth and Melville communities as well as other key stakeholders over a period of three years, so the communities are invited back to find out what the Canning Bridge Structure Plan and Design Guidelines proposed. 

“On the day, professionals involved in the preparation of the Plan for both local governments, along with will be available to answer questions from the community,” she said. 

“The development of the Structure Plan from the original Precinct Vision has been very complex.  It involved testing and detailed studies of various urban aspects, such as transport, design, infrastructure, services capacity, environment and heritage of the area.  The objective is to create a unique, vibrant and creative community centre. 

“The precinct of the future will offer a dynamic mix of residential, office, retail, recreational and cultural uses.  We hope the community is able to see and envision the great possibilities and opportunities through the creation of the Canning Bridge Structure Plan.” 

The Cities of South Perth and Melville are seeking feedback from our communities on the Structure Plan.  Also suggestions for what each of the six 'Quarters' in the Canning Bridge precinct could be called. We invite you to come along to the information display to find out more, email, or write to CEO City of Melville, 10 Almondbury Road, Booragoon by 5pm Friday 12 December 2014.
