Gidgegannup Local Area Plan

Stage one of community consultation for the new draft local area plan ran from April to May 2023 and stage two ran from July 24 to September 4.

Stage one identified the current Gidgegannup local area priorities:

  1. Support the amenity and lifestyle of residents
  2. Enhance the road network for all users
  3. Balance sustainable growth with lifestyle 
  4. Protect and raise awareness of natural assets 
  5. Support and champion community 
  6. Provide bushfire mitigation education 
  7. Support local growth of shops and businesses

Gidgegannup Local Key Area Information

Gidgegannup, Red Hill and Avon Valley National Park 

The previous LAP for Gidgegannup was adopted in 2016. As sometime has now passed since this LAP was created, the City is now preparing for a fresh LAP to recognise the changing priorities and aspirations of the community in 2023. 

Phase one of the LAP consultation process identifies the key priorities for the local community. Phase two examines how these key priorities should be delivered by asking the community to confirm the determined priorities and explore what projects or initiatives they want to see in their local area to deliver these priorities.
