Image of Westminster

The local community describes Westminster as diverse, accessible and affordable. 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 Westminster’s neighbourhood and helps the City rethink how we deliver services with a local focus.

Westminster features shopping complex Stirling Central, located to the north west of the suburb.

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

If you are looking for ways to get involved in your local area, please contact one of the City’s Local Engagement Officers by emailing getinvolved@stirling.wa.gov.au.

Residential development

Westminster is characterised by single residential developments, many of which are timber-framed houses constructed by the State Housing Commission. From the 1960s, private owners began to build brick dwellings on small to medium sized blocks. These are particularly evident in the north west of Westminster.

Unit developments have also been popular in the area, with most being built between 1960 and 1970. The eastern portion of Westminster is characterised by modern dwellings that were constructed from the mid-1970s until the present.

Public open space and community infrastructure

The largest shopping centre in Westminster is Stirling Central, located to the north west of the suburb. It contains specialty stores as well as providing for the daily needs of residents.

Westminster is also home to several public and private primary schools and contains a number of recreational areas including Matt Williams Reserve, Galluccio Reserve and Ted Cross Memorial Reserve. Westminster contains 15 local open spaces, one community open space and one district open space.
