South Perth Station Precinct community engagement and design study

Media Release 1 November 2016
South Perth Station Precinct

The City of South Perth has engaged planning, urban design and place making consultants RobertsDay to review the 2011 vision for the South Perth Station Precinct which was developed in partnership with the WA Planning Commission and the WA Department of Planning. RobertsDay will undertake a detailed study into preferred development in the area, and will recommend policy and town planning scheme provisions to achieve the vision.

“An essential part of the project is engagement with the community and other stakeholders in a way that will capture all points of view and reach people who may not have contributed or feel like they have had their voices heard in the past,” City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty said.

RobertsDay will facilitate a Planning Design Forum, an interactive series of workshops to engage stakeholders over five consecutive days of collaborative investigations and urban design activities.

“The Forum will bring the community and other stakeholders, including Council, together with experts to explore design options and solutions for the ongoing planning and development of the precinct,” Mayor Doherty said.

“The outcome from the Forum will be detailed recommendations for new or modified town planning scheme provisions to guide future development to achieve the City’s vision.”

The project is currently in the early stages of planning, with work in progress to finalise the process for engaging with the community and other interested stakeholders.

The Planning Design Forum and associated workshops are scheduled for February and March 2017, and more information will be available in early 2017.
