Yanchep Lagoon Improvement
Real change is underway at Yanchep. One of Perth’s fastest growing suburbs, Yanchep will soon become part of a thriving metropolitan corridor stretching from the CBD to Two Rocks.
In response to Yanchep’s continuing expansion, a major place-based development, called the Yanchep Lagoon Improvement Project, is underway. This project will create greater opportunities for tourism, recreation and economic growth across the Lagoon Precinct.
Previously, the City worked with the local community and consultants RobertsDay to deliver the place-led Yanchep Lagoon Masterplan to guide future development of the Lagoon Precinct.
The next major stage of the Yanchep Lagoon Improvement Project is the preparation of a Masterplan Implementation Plan. This work builds on the Masterplan and will inform all future development and activity at the Lagoon.
The City will work closely with residents and stakeholders to deliver the Masterplan Implementation Plan and ensure outcomes continue to meet community needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Masterplan Implementation Plan is a significant piece of work that will inform the delivery of all future development and activity at the Lagoon. The Masterplan Implementation Plan will:
- Serve as the basis for detailed designs stemming from the Masterplan’s Concept Plan;
- Facilitate planning and development approvals;
- Provide a land use and development control framework for sites leased to third parties to develop for commercial uses;
- Establish management regimes for sensitive environmental areas; and
- Consider project staging and identify associated project costs.
The Masterplan Implementation Plan will need to be approved by the City of Wanneroo Council, the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage and the WA Planning Commission.
The Masterplan Implementation Plan will be delivered through meaningful collaboration with the local community and key stakeholders. This will ensure the Plan develops in keeping with the Masterplan Vision.
The City will use a range of methods to communicate with the local community, such as online consultations, on-site workshops and notice boards, pop-up engagement activities, Yanchep Lagoon Working Group meetings, and regular liaison with business owners and key stakeholders.
Information on how to get involved with the Yanchep Lagoon Improvement Project will be available on this page and the City’s Your Say page.
