Meltham Suburb


What is being proposed?

The proposal is for a new suburb to be created surrounding Meltham Train Station called 'Meltham'. The suburb will primarily include land currently located in the 'Bayswater' suburb, however small parts of the suburbs of 'Maylands' and 'Bedford' are also proposed to be included, as shown in the map.


What is the purpose of the proposal?

As part of community engagement undertaken for the 'Meltham Surrounds' project, some members of the community felt that the area around Meltham Train Station lacked its own identity and recognition as a place. As a result the City is engaging with the community to see if they would like a new suburb named 'Meltham' to provide the area with a greater sense of identity and place.
