The Town of Victoria Park is calling on members of the community to get involved in the development of a place making strategy to transform Burswood Station East into a precinct that provides a unique place to live, work and enjoy.

Bounded by the Graham Farmer Freeway, Great Eastern Highway and Victoria Park Drive, Burswood Station East is strategically positioned close to many of Perth’s major tourism and entertainment destinations with convenient access to Perth CBD and the broader region. It is in the prime position to stitch together the Peninsula, the Springs, the Belmont Park Redevelopment and Crown Perth to form an integrated, inviting and comfortable urban setting. It will become a central piece of the peninsula’s transformation into Perth’s premier entertainment precinct. 

The Town is asking people to complete a survey, suggest ideas and tell their stories about their historic involvement with the area at http://yourthoughts.victoriapark.wa.gov.au/transforming-burswood-east

Town of Victoria Park Mayor, Trevor Vaughan, said the Burswood Station East place making strategy will set a community-driven vision for Burswood Station East and is a great opportunity for community members, businesses, developers and the Town to work together to deliver a fantastic new precinct. 

“There are many things happening in the area, with the expansion of Crown Perth and the new Perth Stadium getting closer to being completed.”

 “We’re looking forward to seeing the area transform into a place that’s more dynamic.”

The Town had planned two community workshops to gleam ideas and stories for the shared vision for Burswood Station East. Regrettably, attendance registrations were very low and as a result, the workshops have been cancelled. 

The Town is currently working to revise the engagement strategy and will advise shortly of other opportunities for the community to be involved in creating a transformational space at Burswood East.
