Yanchep Lagoon Area Master Plan

Overview

The Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan is a strategic blueprint and community-developed Place Vision to guide future development and amenity at the Lagoon and surrounding areas. 

It covers the area from Mary Lindsay Homestead in the north to Fisherman’s Hollow in the south. 

The Plan was developed by the City with Placemaking consultants, RobertsDay, following an extensive collaborative community engagement process, involving a wide range of stakeholders and local community representatives.

Council approved the Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan on 27 August 2019.

Where we are now

The City of Wanneroo is in the process of implementing the Master Plan.

This is a long-term undertaking that is being progressed in partnership with the Yanchep Lagoon Community Working Group, which comprises the Mayor, Ward Councillors, and local community and business representatives.

The group is initially focusing on short-term improvements that can be implemented in advance of the normal (and lengthy) project planning and approval process - to help make the Lagoon a better place for locals and visitors alike. 

As key sub-projects are progressed, there will be opportunities for you - the community and stakeholders - to provide further feedback and get involved.

Keeping you informed

Major projects aligned to the Yanchep Lagoon Master Plan will be advertised on the City’s Your Say community engagement hub (as individual projects) and also linked to this main webpage.

All subscribers, as well as those Yanchep and Two Rocks residents who participated in the previous community engagement process, will receive email updates on major projects. If you wish to be included on this mailout list for project updates, please subscribe or contact the Project Manager (see below).

Subscribers will also receive copies of the new Yanchep Lagoon eNews, which will be issued quarterly, and include updates on relevant projects and initiatives – big and small.

The first issue is now available and attached to this webpage (See Documents Section).

The unique natural beauty of the Yanchep Lagoon coastal region makes it one of the jewels in the crown of the Western Australian coastline. This is obviously an environmentally sensitive area and culturally important to both the area’s residents and the tourists who come in significant numbers to enjoy its pristine beaches. These include the Lagoon and Fisherman’s Hollow beaches, which provide protected swimming for both young children and adults in a natural ecosystem, and beaches to the south and north that offer good surf breaks for beginning and experienced surfers. In addition, recreational and commercial fishing is also carried out along the coast. These are the reasons why I choose to make Yanchep my home and I believe that future development needs to celebrate these unique assets and, along with the Yanchep National Park, continue to build on the identity of Yanchep being a natural wonder on the metropolitan coast. Major commercial development should be planned and located in the designated city precinct with smaller hospitality businesses (coffee shops, wine bar/restaurant) and recreational parks and infrastructure (skatepark) located sensitively and unobtrusively within the Lagoon Precinct. With careful and insightful planning, alongside intelligent local government policies, the Yanchep Lagoon Precinct can be developed to offer contemporary coastal services for the expanding local community as well as national and international tourists while also protecting the natural beauty of this very special area.
