Great Eastern Highway Urban Corridor Strategy
The draft Great Eastern Highway Urban Corridor Strategy is a strategic planning document to address the need for coordinated planning along Great Eastern Highway.
A number of issues need to be considered, including:
- How land uses and access arrangements could be better coordinated;
- How connections could be improved to some areas including the Swan River;
- How access options for pedestrians, cyclists and businesses could be improved.
The Strategy divides the corridor into four unique precinct areas. It addresses matters relating to land use, built form, the public realm and acnullcess arrangements with a series of recommendations for implementing the vision.
Background and status
Community engagement has played a vital role in preparing the Great Eastern Highway Urban Corridor Strategy:
- In November 2017, the City hosted two Community Visioning and Design Workshops to explore principles and themes that would define an overall vision for the area;
- The draft Great Eastern Highway Urban Corridor Strategy was adopted for the purposes of advertising at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 22 May 2018;
- The draft Strategy was then advertised for public comment from 27 July 2018 until 25 September 2018.
Now the draft Strategy is to be reviewed to take feedback received into consideration. Any findings from the review of Local Planning Scheme No. 15, namely the preparation of the Local Housing Strategy and Activity Centres Planning Strategy will also need to be considered.
