24 June 2022

The City of Kwinana is inviting the community to have a say on the draft City of Kwinana Community Infrastructure Plan 2011 – 2036, which will be open for consultation for 60 days from Monday, 27 June 2022 – 28 August 2022.

Council adopted the draft plan for the purposes of undertaking consultation at its Ordinary Council Meeting on Wednesday, 8 June 2022.

The Community Infrastructure Plan provides the City of Kwinana with a roadmap for providing community infrastructure into the future, focusing on community facilities typically provided by Local Government.

Mayor Carol Adams said the Community Infrastructure Plan was an important document for ensuring that the Kwinana community and its supporting infrastructure was planned out into the future to bring people together and assist in developing networks and relationships important for a strong community.

“Investing in community infrastructure is essential for the health, wellbeing and economic prosperity of any local community,” Mayor Adams said.

“The Community Infrastructure Plan was originally developed in developed in 2009. Those initial plans helped to guide the level of community infrastructure necessary to support the growth of the City and since then the City has undertaken reviews of the plan in 2015 and 2018 to ensure the plan continues to reflect significant changes to the City’s growth,” she said.  

Funding of the Community Infrastructure Plan is linked to the Development Contribution Scheme where a large portion is funded through Developers as part of new housing and the construction of new estates, as well as supported by State and Federal grant funding opportunities and municipal funds. The cost in delivering and operating these facilities and timing of construction will be determined by population growth and available funds. 

Following the consultation period, the Community Infrastructure Plan will go back to Council to consider the submissions received and be considered for adoption. To take part in the consultation on the City’s Community Infrastructure Plan visit https://www.lovemykwinana.com/.
