About the project

A Local Area Plan is being developed by the City in close collaboration with residents and interested parties in Girrawheen Koondoola.  Community engagement will be conducted between February and April 2019 to develop a Local Area Plan by June 2019.

The aim of the Local Area Plan is to:

  • uncover what makes Girrawheen and Koondoola special, unique and distinctive,
  • develop a clear understanding of the services, facilities and programs that will meet the needs of residents and stakeholders
  • guide the provision of services, facilities and programs into the future.
