The Town of Victoria Park is seeking community feedback on the draft Burswood South Streetscape Improvement Plan, which will guide the revitalisation of streets and public spaces in the Burswood South mixed-use precinct over the next 10 years.

The draft plan seeks to transform Burswood and Teddington Roads into an attractive and thriving precinct linking the Burswood Peninsula to Albany Highway.

Town of Victoria Park Mayor, Karen Vernon said that the proposed Streetscape Improvement Plan reflects previous community feedback about the Burswood South mixed-use area.

“It’s clear there is a need to rejuvenate this important precinct to attract investment in redevelopment and improve public amenity for residents and businesses.

“Earlier this year, we asked the community how the Burswood South mixed-use precinct could be improved, and we’ve now developed a plan that will realise our vision of a thriving and distinctive inner-city hub,” said Mayor Vernon.

Key proposals in the plan include new street tree planting and landscaped verges, rain gardens, public alfresco seating areas, widened footpaths and improved pedestrian crossings, additional on-street parking bays, traffic calming measures, public artwork, and the investigation of the potential for underground power.

Community members and businesses are encouraged to attend an information session on Wednesday 27 October, from 4pm – 6pm at the Arts Rubicon Building, 20 Thorogood Street, Burswood.

Town Planning officers will be available to answer questions and chat about the plan.

To view the draft plan and provide feedback on the proposals, visit Your Thoughts or contact the Town on 9311 8111 or admin@vicpark.wa.gov.au.

Feedback is invited until Monday 8 November 2021.
