BERKOCOMBE? Highfield? BurbieMcBurbface?

The community has been given a rare opportunity to name the new suburb around the Forrestfield Train Station in High Wycombe.

The new suburb is the area bounded by Berkshire Road, Roe Highway and Poison Gully Creek in Forrestfield and High Wycombe.

The area, currently referred to as the Forrestfield North District Structure Plan precinct, is undergoing major changes, bringing growth and new opportunities to the area with plans for medium-high density residential housing, new roads, 20 hectares of public open space, primary school and a community hub.

With this new lease of life, the City of Kalamunda is seeking to establish a new name for the locality and wants to hear from the community.

The winner will receive a $500 prize.
