Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan
The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) will guide development in the precinct surrounding the Canning Bridge Station on both sides of the Canning River, extending to an 800 metre radius around the station, or a ten-minute walk. The CBACP supports development of the precinct with a mix of office, retail, residential, recreational and cultural uses, maximising opportunities offered by its unique transport hub location.
Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan Review
The CBACP has been in operation now for a few years. At its August 2018 meeting Council resolved to commence a formal review of the Plan to ensure that it is operating in accordance with its goals and objectives.
Over 230 submissions were received and close to 100 people attended information and feedback sessions as part of the review consultation process. The City also established a Citizen Stakeholder Group (CSG) to analyse the feedback and provide recommended amendments to the CBACP.The CSG met twice to analyse the feedback and provide recommended amendments to the CBACP. Some of the issues identified included the need for new buildings to respect existing streetscapes and character, privacy, light access and construction impacts.
A revised Plan was presented to Council to be endorsed to go out for public comment in September 2019. This Plan is expected to be advertised for public comment in November 2019.

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) is guided by the Canning Bridge Precinct vision:
‘The Canning Bridge area will evolve to become a unique, vibrant, creative community centred on the integrated transport node of the Canning Bridge station. The area will be recognised by its unique location, its integrated mix of office, retail, residential, recreational and cultural uses that create areas of excitement, the promotion of its local heritage and as a pedestrian friendly enclave that integrates with the regional transport networks while enhancing the natural attractions of the Swan and Canning Rivers.’
