Media Release 29 July 2015
South Perth Foreshore
As part of the City’s South Perth Foreshore Strategy and Management Plan (SPF Plan), the City of South Perth has today released concept plans for the development of Mill Point.

One of ten nodes in the SPF Plan, Mill Point has been identified as Node 5. It will be developed as a cultural and heritage hub, with improvements to the beach area, both pedestrian and cycle routes, along with the ecology and amenities of Millers Pool. 

The Mill Point area is of significant environmental, Aboriginal and heritage interest and value. Millers Pool is located east of the Narrows Bridge, one of Western Australia’s prime public and community locations. 

The Node 5 Mill Point concept plans incorporate strategies from the SPF Plan outlined for the Mill Point foreshore node. These include:

Planting of native vegetation at Millers Pool and near the Old Mill
Beach and headland additions
Upgrade of carpark
Amenity improvements including picnic and seating areas with shelters and shady trees
Improved pedestrian paths connecting to a boardwalk over the pool and a small jetty
Potential single storey café/restaurant
Potential food van area
Stage 1 of the project is planned for construction during the 2015/2016 financial year, with commencement planned for April 2016.

The City is seeking community feedback on the Node 5 Mill Point concept plans. They can be viewed on the City’s website or at the Civic Centre and City libraries.
