The City is seeking comment from the community on the closure of the PAW and a portion of Public Open Space (POS) located between Yallambee Place and Koolunda Court in Karawara. A site plan of the PAW is available here.

At its December 2020 meeting, Council considered a petition with 11 signatures requesting the closure of this Public Access Way (PAW) and it was resolved to progress the closure in 2021. The Council report and resolution is available on the Council Meetings page.

The proposed closure will be carried out following the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) guidelines.

How to provide feedback

Feedback closes 4pm, Friday 28 May 2021.

All feedback will be provided in a report to the DPLH who will then make the final decision about progressing the closure.


The Karawara Public Open Space Masterplan and Collaborative Action Plan incorporates 14 projects that aim to strengthen Karawara’s public open space and community character.

Since implementation of the Masterplan commenced in 2013, the majority of project actions have been addressed. The only remaining actions are for a wayfinding strategy to be designed and implemented through the Pedestrian Access Ways (PAWs) and to investigate and trial the installation of permeable fencing along rear property boundaries.
