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.

The City will work closely with residents and stakeholders to guide future development of the Lagoon Precinct and ensure outcomes continue to meet community needs.
