Good times ahead

Canning Times - - NEW YEAR’S WELCOME -

fes­ti­val in March called Hello Man­ning. The trans­for­ma­tion of Mends Street starts this year with the Con­nect South project cre­at­ing an ur­ban heart for South Perth.

The first stage in­cludes the de­vel­op­ment of a pi­azza on Mends Street fore­shore fea­tur­ing seat­ing, shaded ar­eas and light­ing. Con­struc­tion will start af­ter Aus­tralia Day, with com­ple­tion sched­uled for the end of 2019.

Guided by our strate­gic com­mu­nity plan 2017-27, we will con­tinue to fo­cus on how we can de­liver qual­ity ser­vices and in­fra­struc­ture to our com­mu­nity that is both ef­fi­cient and cost­ef­fec­tive. As our pop­u­la­tion grows, we are re­new­ing the plan­ning frame­work that guides how the City re­sponds to this growth.

In 2019, the City will progress de­vel­op­ment of the lo­cal plan­ning strat­egy and South Perth ac­tiv­ity cen­tre plan.

Once fi­nalised, these doc­u­ments will pro­vide a ro­bust plan­ning frame­work to man­age de­vel­op­ment that ac­com­mo­dates fore­cast and re­quired pop­u­la­tion growth in the City.

The prospect of an aquatic fa­cil­ity in the City has been un­der con­sid­er­a­tion for some years.

In 2018, the re­cre­ation and aquatic fa­cil­ity fea­si­bil­ity project looked into the vi­a­bil­ity of a mul­ti­pur­pose fa­cil­ity and this year fur­ther re­search and a busi­ness plan will be pre­sented by July.
