NEXT STEPS

Thank you to those people who provided a submission on the draft Bayswater Town Centre Structure Plan; the consultation period has now closed.

Further details will be provided here regarding the date of the relevant Council meeting, so keep an eye on this page. All submitters will also be advised of the relevant Council meeting date.


Bayswater Station Upgrade

Bayswater Station is destined to become an important transport hub with both the Forrestfield-Airport Link and the proposed Morley-Ellenbrook rail line connecting to Perth's rail network at Bayswater. It will also influence the Bayswater Town Centre Structure Plan.

Consultation on the State Government's planned major upgrade for the station is underway. The consultation includes two drop in sessions for the community and an online survey.

The drop in sessions are to be held at Bayswater Primary School, 10am - 2pm on Saturday 21 April, and Saturday 5 May.

More information about the project and a link to the online survey can be found on Metronet's website: https://www.metronet.wa.gov.au/projects/bayswater.

    One of the outcomes from the engagement process is that there is benefit in placing the progression of the Structure Plan on hold to ensure it is consistent with the planning of the Bayswater Train Station. In light of this, the City is postponing the preparation of a report to Council on the matter until mid-2018.

    As part of the initiative, the City is calling for expressions of interest from residents and business owners who would like to join a Community Advisory Group that will provide a valuable perspective on any proposals that may be considered as the structure plan is being developed.

    Deputy Mayor Stephanie Coates said it was important to the success of the structure plan project to be able to access the community's local knowledge and understand their aspirations for the future.

    "That way we can ensure the structure plan being developed will be fit for purpose and will contribute to creating an even more liveable community for Bayswater," she said.

    "That means planning for walkable, connected neighbourhoods featuring high quality urban design, and ensuring that we protect and enhance Bayswater's heritage and distinctive character."

    Deputy Mayor Stephanie Coates said the Bayswater town centre structure plan will guide development in the town centre and ensure that these developments are appropriate in terms of design, scale and location.

    "I want to strongly encourage anyone wanting to join the Community Advisory Group to express their interest and get involved," she added.

    To express an interest in participating in the Community Advisory Group, visit the City's online consultation portal at http://engage.bayswater.wa.gov.au.

    The City is also organising a visioning workshop for the community to help develop the structure plan that will take place at the end of October.

    "We are now in a position to have a real conversation with business owners, residents and community members so that a shared vision for the Bayswater Town Centre can be achieved."

    "The feedback we receive will inform the Bayswater Town Centre's Structure Plan and pave the way for the redevelopment of the Bayswater Town Centre as a vibrant, community friendly space boasting attractive alfresco areas, shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities."

    "We are also working with the State Government to see how best we can integrate the Bayswater Train Station into the town centre and explore attractive higher density living options."

    "We want to have an open discussion with our community about their expectations for the future of the centre, how its unique characteristics can be preserved and enhanced and how the centre can accommodate an increased level of activity and a larger local population."

    Mayor McKenna said the engagement process will enable the City to canvass a wide range of views from various sections of the community.

    As part of the Community and Stakeholder Plan, the City will establish a Community Advisory Group. Focus groups and visioning workshops will be conducted to allow the City to develop a range of possible scenarios for consideration by the community.

    The City's dedicated community portal, Engage Bayswater, will also contain information on how the community can get involved. Information will also be included on the City's website, advertorials and publications.

    "In working together we hope to see the transformation of the Bayswater Town Centre for all to enjoy," Mayor McKenna said.

    "Preparing the structure plan will involve extensive community consultation, which means local ratepayers, residents and business owners will have a say on planning for the future of their area," she said.

    "It will help ensure that heritage and character values are preserved for the future; that developments are appropriate in terms of design, scale and location; and that we create walkable neighbourhoods featuring high quality urban design."

    "The structure plan will also look at how all of the town's transport connections work and support each other.

    "That involves considering pedestrian and cycle routes, the local road network, parking provisions, and integrated public transport that sees bus and train services working together."

    Councillor Coates said that the State Government's Forrestfield Perth Airport Link rail project that is due to get underway later this year has major implications for Bayswater town centre.

    "It will definitely put pressure on the Bayswater town site and its rail station, and make it increasingly attractive to prospective developers," she noted.

    "That makes it doubly important that we start consulting with the community on the structure plan as soon as possible.

    "This is a once in a generation opportunity to involve the community in guiding the development of Bayswater town centre for years to come," Cr Coates added.

    Preparing the Bayswater town centre structure plan is expected to take approximately nine months.
