Bayswater Town Centre Structure Plan scope to be widened

THE scope of the Bayswater Town Centre Structure Plan is set to be widened to build on design principles and define architectural precincts.

Bayswater Council moved to appoint a consultant to prepare design guidelines for a structure plan being carried out by TPG, including to define architectural precincts and to ensure heritage and character in the town centre was embraced.

Deputy Mayor Stephanie Coates said the current Bayswater plan lacked scope.

The consultant’s appointment would be subject to $40,000 being available in the budget.

Council also moved for the City of Bayswater to work with the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council to prepare a Smart Cities and Suburbs submission for the Federal Government in relation to the Forrestfield Airport Link.

If successful, the City could access $100,000 to $5 million for a project that aims to “apply innovative technology-based approaches to improve the liveability of cities and their suburbs.”
