The Dianella Local Area project was the pilot project for the Local Area Planning program and was conducted during 2006.

In March and April 2006 over 600 local residents, community, government and business representatives took part in community consultation through a survey, an Issues and Opportunities Workshop, or Dialogue with Dianella. This input provided the City with valuable insight into the community's aspirations and priorities for the local area over the coming decade. A community vision (see below) and a Dianella Local Area Plan were prepared based on this input.

Council adopted the Dianella Local Area Plan in February 2007 and an ongoing Action and Implementation programme was developed and adopted by Council early 2008, to achieve the objectives of the Local Area Plan. For further information regarding Local Area Implementation Plans please call the Local Area Planning team on 9205 8555.

Community Vision

The community vision for the Dianella Local Area is for it to have a green leafy character dominated by trees, parks and bushland. Key precincts will become more vibrant through improved commercial and community amenities and an active, diverse community, yet the area will maintain the feeling of a safe place to be.

Improvements will be sought in areas of concern, such as transport and housing choices, yet in 2020 the area will still feel quite similar to how it does today. The Dianella Local Area encompasses the suburb of Dianella and the adjacent parts of Mirrabooka, Nollamara and Yokine that fall within major road or land use boundaries.
