The strategies, which are used to guide future development in the area, have previously been applied to Spearwood, Hamilton Hill and Coolbellup.

Council will now begin work on the Lakes Revitalisation Strategy, which will encompass North Lake, Bibra Lake and South Lake.

The aim is to enhance the unique traits associated with the area, allow for a variety of housing types and contribute to urban infill, promote affordable housing and infrastructure that will support future growth.

Connecting South Lake president Calvin Chee said the group is keen to see more done to beautify the area, including added artwork.

He also said keeping big trucks off suburban streets was a concern that required addressing.

‘I think South Lake is seen as a bit of an in-between suburb, we get lost in the middle sometimes,’ he said.

‘It will be good to see more attention on the area.’
