Wanneroo Local Area Plan

Community workshop report released

More than 20 local residents and businesses took part in a Community Workshop on 12 March to gather input to the Wanneroo Local Area Plan.

The workshop built on the feedback captured through the community survey, the City’s online interactive map, stakeholder meetings and community interviews.

Following the workshop, the project team has been documenting and analysing the input from participants – please see Workshop Report attached, along with a presentation that was made on the night.

All of the comments and ideas gathered to date will be used to develop the draft Wanneroo Local Area Plan.

Previously it was planned to host a Community Open House in May to consult on the draft Local Area Plan.  However, following advice from the Federal Government against large indoor gatherings and social distancing measures due to the coronavirus issue, the City has cancelled this workshop.

Instead, we will continue to develop the draft Local Area Plan and seek community feedback on the draft in other ways.

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.

Community engagement will occur between 26 January 2020 and 31 March 2020, with an intention to finalise the Wanneroo Local Area Plan by 30 June 2020. 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.
