The City of Kwinana is asking local residents and businesses to share their vision for the future of the Kwinana City Centre by Monday, 1 July.

The current Kwinana City Centre Master Plan was adopted in 2009, and since then many changes have taken place in the area, including the re-development of the Marketplace Shopping Centre and the completion of the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre.

Mayor Carol Adams said that in March this year, Council had identified the need to review the plan given its age and the substantial development that has occurred since its adoption.

"The Master Plan was adopted by Council a decade ago and many positive changes have taken place in the area since then," said Mayor Adams.

"Now is the time for us to look into the future and create an even better City Centre environment for our community," she said.​

The revised Master Plan considers various elements of planning, from land uses, streetscapes and built form to car parking and pedestrians, as well as public art, street furniture, landscaping and signage.

"Our aim for the Kwinana City Centre is to create a vibrant and safe environment that moves away from car use and moves towards easy access for local residents to shops, amenities, transport and entertainment," said Mayor Adams.

The revised Master Plan considers better connections between the Marketplace, the Kwinana Bus Station, Calista Oval and the adjacent Edge Skatepark and Adventure Park, Banksia Aged Care and other important City services such as the Recquatic and the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre.

It also proposes connecting the Marketplace shopping centre with Chisham Avenue to create a thriving, busy area of shops, and cafes with alfresco dining along the street.​

The revised Master Plan submission period closes at 5pm Monday 1st July 2019. Two information sessions are being held in June (see details below). More information can be found on the Public Notices​ webpage.
