A City con­nected

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Aaron Cor­lett

IM­PROV­ING green places and con­nec­tiv­ity have been high­lighted as goals in the City of South Perth’s Place + De­sign: South Perth Sta­tion Precinct study.

The re­port presents ideas for the South Perth Sta­tion Precinct (SPSP) and im­me­di­ate sur­round­ing area, as well as rec­om­men­da­tions for con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment.

The Place + De­sign team, led by Robert­sDay, has col­lab­o­rated for the past six months with City staff, coun­cil­lors and stake­hold­ers in­clud­ing com­mu­nity group rep­re­sen­ta­tives, res­i­dents, de­vel­op­ers, busi­ness own­ers, land own­ers and gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

The re­sult­ing puts for­ward rec­om­men­da­tions for plan­ning, trans­porta­tion, public realm, built form and place­mak­ing.

It also in­cludes an im­ple­men­ta­tion sched­ule out­lin­ing short, medium and long term pri­or­i­ties for spe­cific ac­tions re­quired to de­liver on the goals and ideas col­lec­tively de­vel­oped with stake­hold­ers.

Cen­tral to this is the rec­om­men­da­tion of an Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Plan for the South Perth Sta­tion Precinct and im­me­di­ate sur­round­ing area to com­pre­hen­sively ad­dress built form, public realm, place man­age­ment, eco­nomic, traf­fic and in­fra­struc­ture is­sues.

The City of South Perth is now seek­ing com­mu­nity and stake­holder feed­back on the Place + De­sign study and on the goals, ideas and ac­tions out­lined in the re­port.

Feed­back will pro­vide pre­lim­i­nary guid­ance for the City to con­sider in pro­gress­ing with plan­ning for the South Perth Sta­tion Precinct and sur­round­ing area.

Peo­ple who want to pro­vide com­ments can do so by com­plet­ing the sur­vey on Your Say South Perth be­fore 4pm on June 9.
