A TOWN team has been launched in Bassendean, in a bid to make positive change in the community.

Old Perth Road Collective was launched at O2 Cafe in Bassendean this month, where more than 70 residents attended and Town Team members from other suburbs delivered presentations.

The team, made up of volunteers who are locals and business owners, was formed to reduce the gap between what the community want and what the council can deliver.

Members will help the Town of Bassendean in implementing community projects.

Chair Lizzie Richardson said the group aimed to create stronger communities and better places by encouraging businesses and residents to work together.

“We’re really excited to planning potential projects and developing an action plan,” she said.

“We would love anyone interested in being involved to get in touch, everyone has something to offer the group and the time commitment can be as little or as much as what works for you.

“Potential future projects include festivals, place-making, street art, improving public spaces and streetscapes and supporting local businesses.”

The team is holding a meeting on May 15 at the Bassendean Community Hall at 6.45pm.
