THE City of Wanneroo has started consultation for a master plan on future of the Yanchep Lagoon area.

The City is preparing the master plan to set a framework for future development and activities at the lagoon to help make it an iconic destination for the suburb’s growing population and visitors.

The plan would aim to maximise opportunities for a mix of commercial and community infrastructure, pay respect to the history and heritage of the site, as well as provide amenities and walkable spaces.

Through the community engagement process, the City wants to hear what people value about the area and suggestions to improve it.

Consultation opened yesterday for people to share ideas and vote on others using an interactive online map or complete an online survey via the City’s website until November 16.

People can also register to be one of 30 people involved in a planning and design forum in Yanchep on November 28 and 29 or attend a community open evening to give feedback on concept designs on December 10 from 4.30pm to 7pm.

“Engaging and working with residents who are passionate about the Lagoon area will help the City gain a clear understanding of what is loved and valued most by the community,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

The City’s administration plan to present a report to the council in mid-2019.

The area includes the former surf life saving club, new Yanchep Surf Life Saving Club building, Fisherman’s Hollow, Orion Cafe, Brazier Road, Mary Lindsay Homestead and foreshore dunes.
