My Future Melville to focus on Murdoch Activity Centre

THE My Future Melville Speaker Series continues this week with a special focus on the Murdoch Activity Centre.

In late August, the City of Melville held the first of five independent sessions to give residents and businesses an opportunity to hear about the City’s 20-year vision and changes contained in recently adopted Local Planning Strategy 6 (LPS6).

A cornerstone of LPS6 is the creation of key residential and commercial activity centres in Bicton, Willagee, Murdoch, on Riseley Street and near Canning Bridge.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the City had spent a number of years planning for the future, with feedback from the community forming a fundamental part of the process.

“With the LPS now approved by State Government, it is important our residents and businesses have the chance to get an update so they know what is going on and can now plan for their own future,” he said.

“We want our community to be clear about why we need the 20-year vision, to understand how the planned activity centres will develop over time and importantly to learn about the opportunities long term planning will bring.

“There will be better housing options to suit every stage of life, improved community hubs, more transport options, commercial and retail diversity and more opportunities for local businesses and more jobs.”

The sessions are free but places are limited. For more information and to register online visit www.melvillecity.com.au/ myfuturemelville or call 9364 0666.
