The City of Subiaco has undertaken an urban design study to guide the future planning and development of the area bound by Townshend Road/Haydn Bunton Drive, Railway Road, Thomas Street and Churchill Avenue, to be referred to as North Subiaco.
The North Subiaco area is considered to be in transition due to a number of factors, including the future of the Princess Margaret Hospital and Subiaco Oval sites, as well as development pressures from surrounding areas. Two urban design frameworks for the future development of the North Subiaco area have been prepared.
The main aim of the frameworks is to create an economically resilient area that complements and builds on the existing development pattern. Both of the frameworks build on the existing scale, pattern and character of the area, and consider key drivers of change that will shape how North Subiaco looks and functions in
The city invites community involvement and feedback on the two frameworks to ensure the plan reflects a shared vision, values and community aspirations. In particular, residents, workers and those who visit the area regularly are encouraged to get involved and help shape the future of North Subiaco.
Participants can have their say by visiting the city's Have your say website. Hard copy information and feedback forms can also be found at the city’s Administration Centre, 241 Rokeby Road, Subiaco, and Subiaco Library, 237 Rokeby Road, Subiaco, during normal operating hours.
Comments are to be received by 5pm on Friday 3 October 2014.
