The City is now seeking your comment on the Strategy and Statutory Planning Documents that propose to rezone the centres in Balga, Mirrabooka, and Nollamara as phase one of potential zoning changes for the area.
Draft Better Suburbs Strategy
The strategy aims to maintain lower density residential areas of the City for family and larger households, increase tree coverage, improve the overall liveability of the City, and focus investment, jobs and housing growth along public transport corridors and within activity centres. The Draft Better Suburbs Strategy can be located here or in the document library below.
