The local community describes Inglewood as vibrant, friendly, connected. To better understand what is means to be ‘a local’ our suburb profile seeks to understand the local stories Koora (past), Yeyi (present), Boordawan (future) and respond to Ngalang Maya (our place). This snapshot identifies the unique character of Inglewood’s neighbourhood and helps the City rethink how we deliver services with a local focus.

Inglewood has a high heritage value, with cultural and historical significance.

Local focus

The City has created Locally-led Stirling to drive deeper connection at a local suburb level to listen and respond with a local focus.  At the heart of this Locally-led approach is an understanding that local people know what they need and a vision for everyone to get involved in shaping what it means to be “a local”.

We want to bring neighbours together, invest in local stories and inspire opportunities to work together. To find out more about Locally-led Stirling, visit Shaping our City

Residential development

Inglewood has experienced 2 distinct booms in residential growth:

  • Between 1904 and 1920, single residential housing was built to accommodate the blue-collar population 
  • Around World War Two between 1935 and 1940, more development occurred.

The majority of residences in Inglewood are of pre-war vintage (many are of a Federation or Californian bungalow style) and towards Mount Lawley area, a typical lot size is 730m2, increasing to up to 1400m2 east of Beaufort Street.

Inglewood has a high heritage value, with numerous places of cultural and historical significance, and many of the older dwellings have been renovated and restored to their original styles. In addition to character housing, there are 1960s flats and modern unit developments scattered throughout the suburb.
