The draft Perth Water Precinct Plan

Project Overview

The Perth Water Precinct – the section of the Swan River and its foreshore between the Narrows and Windan bridges – is evolving with several major projects underway, increasing visitor numbers, and growing interest for tourist and commercial ventures.  Given the significance of Perth Water, a draft Precinct Plan has been developed to guide future improvement of the precinct, its foreshores and abutting private development interface in a strategic and proactive manner for the wider benefit of all visitors to the area.

The draft Precinct Plan sets a framework to determine acceptable developments (including uses) for the area based on defining landscape characteristics, community aspirations and environmental and cultural values.  Considerations within the draft Precinct Plan include recreation, commercial nodes, public access, facilities and services infrastructure, foreshore protection, and environmental enhancement and management.
