Your chance to comment on future Bullsbrook plans
Published on 10 January 2018
You’re invited to have your say on the City of Swan’s draft Bullsbrook Local Area Plan (LAP), which is now open for comment for five weeks.
Local Area Plans are important documents used by the City to plan for specific areas, address local community issues and meet their future needs.
City of Swan Deputy Mayor Kevin Bailey said population growth is a key focus for future planning in Bullsbrook.
“The community is growing fast alongside industrial, commercial and residential development,” he said.
“The population of Bullsbrook is growing by 6.15% per year, compared to the greater City of Swan growth rate of 2.78%.
“By 2036, the population is set to increase to 20,301. With this in mind, we want to know what you think Bullsbrook should look like in the future.”
Pearce Ward Councillor Cate McCullough said the community’s input during the recent consultation process was essential in forming the draft Bullsbrook LAP.
“Key priorities identified by Bullsbrook residents included improving visual amenity, preserving community spirit, protecting rural character, and lessening the impact of industrial activity,” she said.
“We have listened to these comments, and others, and have developed a number of key strategies and actions that we would now like your comment on.”
“The City’s priority is to work together with the community to produce the best plans for the future of Bullsbrook.”
The draft plan is available for comment for five weeks from January 8, 2018, with submissions closing on February 11.
Comments received will be considered for inclusion in the final draft document and presented to Council for endorsement.
