City of Stirling residents urged to make Balga, Dianella, Nollamara, Mirrabooka and Westminster “Better Suburbs”

THE City of Stirling is encouraging residents to take part in the “Better Suburbs” project to improve the suburbs of Balga, Dianella, Nollamara, Mirrabooka and Westminster.

Mayor Giovanni Italiano said the City was committed to delivering high quality urban places and spaces, where people choose to live, work, visit and invest.

“This includes safe and thriving neighbourhoods with a range of housing, employment and recreational opportunities, while ensuring the City’s natural environment is protected,” he said.

“The Better Suburbs project is guided by the vision and long-term planning directions of the City’s Local Planning Strategy.”

The aim is to focus on investment, jobs and housing growth on corridors and centres, maintain residential areas of the City for family and larger households and increase tree coverage.

It would improve the overall liveability of the City and ensure its natural environment is protected and enhanced.

The project is expected to deliver a plan to encourage development of a range of housing types, improved open spaces and more tree coverage.

It will also identify residential areas to be retained for family housing and opportunities for growth around centres and along transport corridors.

The survey closes February 28.
