Help guide the future development of Bayswater town centre - September 2016
The City of Bayswater is seeking to work with the local community to develop a structure plan for Bayswater town centre's future development.
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.
