Environment and Liveability Framework

The City acknowledges the need to be more strategic in light of upcoming challenges such as climate change, community expectations, population growth and emerging technologies. That is why we are developing an ‘Environment and Liveability Framework’ that will guide the City’s actions in the areas of natural environment and built form over the next 25 years.

The Framework will anticipate projects and policies required to work towards a future that better integrates the natural and built environments. It will help us to deliver quality green spaces and more sustainable lifestyles, support infrastructure and create more desirable streetscapes and buildings.

We do not want to create this Framework in isolation and believe that local experts should inform the Framework to ensure it aligns with community sentiment and contemporary thinking.

How can I get involved?

The City has recently established a group of volunteers who are local residents with significant professional experience and qualifications in their fields. The group will work with the City to co-write the Environment and Liveability Framework, focusing on 12 key themes.

The community will be invited to further contribute to the project, including an upcoming survey of the City's Engage Bayswater Panel.

Further information on the project and 12 themes are contained in the Project Brief, located in the document library.

    Planning for the City of Bayswater’s Environment and Liveability Framework is well underway.

    Comprising of eight local volunteers with significant professional experience and qualifications in their fields, the group held their initial meeting at the beginning of this month.

    City of Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the team have worked closely with Curtin University throughout the past month, devising a list of key issues they believe our City will be facing into the next 25 years.

    “Our community have told us they want us to focus on supporting infrastructure, and creating quality green spaces and more desirable streetscapes and buildings - with an emphasis on sustainability and innovation. We need to be embedding sustainability into everything we do, ensuring our built and natural environments are designed to work together.

    “In selecting volunteers who are not only specialists in their fields, but also live locally, we aim to achieve a vital balance of technical knowledge, paired with a genuine, firsthand understanding of the needs and aspirations of our community.

    “This unique approach aims to ensure the City’s projects take a more strategic approach, setting us up to achieve these goals as we build into the future.

    “As our next step, we will be bringing the findings of the past month to the wider community, through a consultation with the City’s Community Engagement Panel, we aim to gain an understanding of the values and priorities of the very people who will be seeing that future out with us.”
