Wanneroo Local Area Plan
Wanneroo Local Area Plan endorsed by Council (Dec. 2020)
The City would like to thank community members who participated in the community engagement process to help shape the Wanneroo Local Area Plan (LAP).
Local Area Plans are a City initiative that aim to uncover what makes individual communities special, unique and distinctive.
Taking on board local priorities, the Plan will guide how the City provides local services, facilities and programs into the future.
More than 900 local residents participated in the Wanneroo LAP community engagement process held during February and March, with 20 people and businesses attending a Community Workshop.
This page had more than 1,800 project page visits, the interactive mapping tool received 65 comments and suggestions, and 140 people completed the community survey.
The mapping tool is now closed, but you are welcome to view the final results.
The Wanneroo Local Area Plan has now been endorsed by Council and will guide the future planning and operations of the area.
About the project
The City’s Strategic Community Plan places a strong emphasis on improving the distinctiveness of neighbourhoods, strengthening local character and improving the understanding and awareness of features, priorities and needs in our local communities.
To proactively address this, Council has adopted a ‘Place Approach’ to guide how the unique places across the City will be developed, managed and activated now and in the future.
The City is currently developing a Local Area Plan in close collaboration with residents and interested parties in the Wanneroo area. The Wanneroo Local Area Plan boundary, shown on the map below, reflects an area surrounding the Wanneroo Town Centre, including the Wanneroo Civic Centre, Showgrounds, Rotary Park, and the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre.
The aim of the Plan is to:
- provide information on what makes this Wanneroo area special to you;
- better understand what your community values about the local area;
- identify local priorities of your community; and
- ensure that service delivery (by the City and others) responds to key priorities.
