The Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project is a Town of Victoria Park revitalisation project being partly delivered under a unique public-private partnership, to provide a sustainable multi-use sporting, recreation, health and education precinct for the whole community.

To deliver the project, a partnership has formed between the Town, West Coast Eagles, Wirrpanda Foundation and Perth Football Club, which aims to set new standards in the delivery of an active community sports complex, as well as lasting community benefits.

The project is made up of seven zones, most of which have been completed. The zone in focus for 2020 and beyond is Zone 1 - Perth Football Club.

Community Benefits Strategy

The Community Benefits Strategy is a collaborative approach between the Town of Victoria Park and its project partners the West Coast Eagles, Wirrpanda Foundation and Perth Football Club.

The Community Benefits Strategy underpins the lease commitment of the project partners’ delivering programs to the community, as part of the redevelopment of the Lathlain Precinct. The community benefit programs will be resourced by:

  • One full time staff member from the West Coast Eagles,
  • One full time staff member from the Wirrpanda Foundation and
  • One hundred hours of West Coast Eagles player involvement, per year.

Listening to the community has been a key ingredient in developing the Community Benefit Strategy and selecting the community benefit programs to be delivered the first five years. 

You can read the Community Benefits Strategy under Council documents.
