Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan Review

The public comment period has closed. Thank you to everyone that was involved with this project and provided their feedback.

The Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan (CBACP) is a guide for development in the precinct surrounding the Canning Bridge Station, on both sides of the Canning River. The CBACP was developed to support development of the precinct with a mix of office, retail, residential, recreational and cultural uses, maximising opportunities offered by its unique transport hub location.

Canning Bridge Activity Centre Plan Review

An extensive review of the land on the City of South Perth side of the river has been undertaken. Earlier this year we asked all stakeholders to share their experiences with the CBACP and aspirations for the area. The engagement process allowed extensive opportunity for everyone in the community to get involved and share their views. Over 230 submissions were received and close to 100 people attended information and feedback sessions as part of the consultation process. Some of the issues identified included the need for new buildings to respect existing streetscapes and character, privacy, light access and construction impacts.

As part of this project we established a Citizen Stakeholder Group (CSG) which was made up of a random and representative selection of stakeholders from the CBACP community. The CSG met twice to analyse the feedback and provide recommendations on how the CBACP could be improved.

A number of changes have been proposed to the CBACP that are the end result of the extensive engagement program. These modifications were presented to Council and endorsed for public comment in September 2019.

Next Steps

Feedback on this project closed on 27 November 2019. It is expected that the outcomes of the community consultation will be presented to Council for final consideration in February 2020. To keep up to date with this project you can Register for Email Updates or visit the City's Website.

    Developing the recommendations

    As part of this project we are establishing a Citizen Stakeholder Group (CSG) which will be made up of a random and representative selection of stakeholders from the CBACP community.

    The CSG will meet twice in May and will provide advice to Council on recommended amendments to the CBACP, based on the feedback received from stakeholders and the community.
