The State Government will determine how to better utilise the Swan River, with hopes a new plan could improve the river for the environment and Western Australians.
A new draft plan has been introduced to Western Australians, to help guide the future management and improvement of the precinct’s foreshores and development interface between the Narrows and Windan Bridges.
The draft Perth Water Precinct Plan addresses foreshore protection, tourism opportunities, activation and recreation, public and private transport and cultural importance of the area.
It will also allow enough flexibility for new opportunities to be explored.
Western Australians are being encouraged to provide feedback and ideas on how the Swan River precinct can be used.
Environment Minister Stephen Dawson said was one of Perth’s “greatest assets.”
“(It) is valued by both locals and visitors alike for its natural beauty, tourism opportunities, recreational pursuits and cultural values,” Mr Dawson said.
“This Plan will help guide future use of the area so I encourage everyone to have their say on what they think will help make the area even better and enjoyable by all.”
He added that the plan would provide vibrancy to the area.
“This area of the Swan River has so much potential, but it is a journey that we need to all take together to try reach the best possible outcomes.”
