The third day of the South Perth Station Precinct Planning Design Forum focused on exploring and documenting some of the ideas that were raised over the first two days.

The discussions on Monday and Tuesday provided a lot of information and ideas. The design team began sketching plans around options for reconfiguring of and traffic calming on Mill Point Road and Labouchere Road near the intersection of Mends Street, as well as ideas for a town square between Mends Street and the Zoo.

The design team also progressed work on plans such as:

  • the structure of the study area, including defining sub-precincts
  • landscape and public realm plan
  • sustainable transport plan
  • beginning of an overall masterplan
  • ideas and conversation starter sketches. 

The Planning team met with representatives from the Department of Planning to discuss options for implementing the plans through the statutory planning framework. A number of options were discussed, including potential 'quick wins' to address some of the more pressing matters affecting development in the Precinct, and some longer term options to implement the vision that is emerging through the Forum.

At the end of the day, approximately 50 community members returned to the Hall to view the progress so far and further discuss the concepts with the project team. Once again many great ideas were raised and the team will continue to explore these during the final two days of the Forum.

All community members are invited to view the work in progress from the Forum at the last of the public exhibitions from 5pm on Friday 17 March 2017 at South Perth Community Hall, Cnr Sandgate St & South Tce, South Perth.
