Yangebup Revitalisation Strategy

Consultation has concluded

August 2018

A summary of community feedback from the Yangebup Revitalisation forums and online survey is now publicly available.

Themes included:

  • Preservation of the natural environment and local character
  • Some appetite for low-to-medium housing density
  • Development around the pump track to include more picnic and parks facilities
  • Street enhancements including footpath and cycling links

Thank you for your participation -- more than 180 people attended the three workshops.

A draft strategy is being prepared, based on your feedback. It will go to Council early in 2019, seeking approval to publicly advertise it for your further comment.

Background

The City invited community input by 6 July into the Yangebup Revitalisation Strategy to guide change and growth across the suburb into the future. Yangebup residents were invited to attend three forums in June and July and complete an online survey.

The visioning sessions sought to identify how the Yangebup community would like to see the suburb evolve into the future. Discussion included:

  • How the future of Cockburn as a City is changing, particularly in respect to urban infill and housing choice
  • Future housing needs for the area
  • How public facilities within the suburb (like streets, parks, footpaths) should evolve into the future
  • Important special features that should be protected.

This map shows the extent of the study area. Note that the study area only covers the most established parts of Yangebup and not the entire suburb.
