Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan
The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) is a guide for development in the precinct surrounding the Canning Bridge Station on both sides of the Canning River. The CBACP aims to support 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. An extensive review of the CBACP has now been undertaken.
Earlier this year we asked stakeholders to share their experiences with the CBACP and aspirations for the area. The extensive engagement process allowed opportunity for everyone in the community to get involved and share their views. Over 230 submissions were received and close to 100 people attended information and feedback sessions as part of the consultation process.
As part of this project a Citizen Stakeholder Group (CSG) was established. The group was made up of a random and representative selection of stakeholders from the CBACP community. The CSG met twice to analyse the feedback and provide recommendations on how the CBACP could be improved.
A number of changes to the Plan were presented to Council and endorsed for public advertising in September 2019.
Feedback on the CBACP review closed on 27 November 2019. It is expected that the outcomes of the community consultation will be presented to Council for final consideration in early 2020.
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.’
