Draft ac­tiv­ity cen­tre plan

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE City of Su­bi­aco has ap­proved the draft Su­bi­aco Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre Plan, which hopes to bring a longterm vi­sion to the sub­urb. Coun­cil­lors en­dorsed the plan at last month’s meet­ing .

The plan, which fo­cuses on den­sity, her­itage con­ser­va­tion, move­ment, public space and land use, has been sent to the WA Plan­ning Com­mis­sion for ap­proval.

Su­bi­aco chief ex­ec­u­tive Don Bur­nett said the plan would guide fu­ture de­vel­op­ment and aid the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the town cen­tre.

“The plan has been de­vel­oped in con­sul­ta­tion with the com­mu­nity to cre­ate an in­tense, ex­cit­ing, live­able and sus­tain­able town cen­tre to meet the needs of a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion, cel­e­brat­ing what makes Su­bi­aco unique and em­brac­ing a bright fu­ture for our City,” he said.

“The City re­ceived gen­er­ally pos­i­tive feed­back re­gard­ing im­por­tant as­pects of the plan in­clud­ing the vi­sion state­ment, build­ing heights and her­itage pro­vi­sions that were ini­tially de­vel­oped dur­ing the ac­tiv­ity cen­tre vi­sion­ing process in 2013.

“This plan drives the frame­work that sup­ports growth and change, with a re­newed fo­cus on sus­tain­able ur­ban liv­ing, pro­tec­tion of Su­bi­aco’s her­itage, trans­port net­works and the cre­ation of in­no­va­tive public spa­ces.”
