Shop­ping for ideas

Eastern Reporter - - News -

RES­I­DENTS liv­ing in the Town of Bassendean are set to voice their views on the fu­ture of Bassendean at a shopfront on Old Perth Road as part of a com­mu­nity en­gage­ment process.

At the De­cem­ber 18 coun­cil meet­ing, Bassendean Coun­cil unan­i­mously voted to en­dorse the project time­line to de­liver a com­mu­nity and stake­holder en­gage­ment strat­egy.

Out­comes of the en­gage­ment strat­egy will con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the Town’s lo­cal plan­ning strat­egy. Fund­ing for the strat­egy would be in­cluded in the 2018-19 bud­get review in Fe­bru­ary, with more fund­ing to be al­lo­cated for leas­ing a shop-front and de­sign mod­els in the 201920 bud­get.

It is ex­pected to cost be­tween $80,000 and $140,000 to ap­point a con­sul­tant team.

Of­fi­cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing va­cant sites for the shopfront, which is pro­posed to be open for the com­mu­nity over a six-month pe­riod.

Com­ple­tion is ex­pected in Oc­to­ber.
