Malaga Local Area Priorities (relative dot points are referenced on the map by priority number)

Priority 1 - Improving Parking Compliance and its Impacts
  • The City’s Community Safety Parking team conduct more regular patrol parking patrols within Malaga, however generally parking behaviour in this area is safe and within the rules.
Priority 2 - Pedestrian and Cycle Connectivity
  • In March 2020 the City completed re-construction of a principle shared pathway (PSP) along Reid Highway from Malaga Drive to Altone Road, providing greater connections and convenience to cyclists and pedestrians. The path provides a safer environment for cyclist and pedestrians with lighting, wayfinding signs, pavement markings and landscaping.
Priority 3 - Reduce Illegal Dumping and Minimising its Impacts
  • The Malaga Recycling Centre is opened every Thursday-Sunday and free to all City of Swan residents. The centre is located on Cogla Street and accepts green waste, brick rubble, clothing, cardboard, containers, e-waste and more. The facility is increasing recycling capacity of the City and the community.
  • The City has a bin tagging program, whereby staff conduct checks of bins and provide constructive individual feedback on how each business can recycle better. This has resulted in a 40% improvement in recycling in Malaga during the audit period.
Priority 4 - Improving Community Safety through Lighting and CCTV
  • The City continues to work with the Malaga Crime Management Forum through funding contributions to the maintenance of existing CCTV cameras, as well as trialling mobile CCTV.
Priority 5 - Improve Traffic and Road Safety and Flows
  • The City continues to apply for Black Spot funding and monitors traffic safety and complaints, and investigates where relevant.
Priority 6 - Ensure the Growth of Compatible and Rational Land Uses in Malaga
  • The City’s Investment sheet for Malaga is currently being reviewed by an external consultant, project led by Business and Tourism Services team.
  • The review of the City’s Local Planning Scheme will allow the area to adapt to meet the contemporary needs of an industrial area whilst retaining its essential industrial core etc. The review will see the introduction of definitions which are generally consistent with this.
