THE City of Stirling is seeking to expand its boundary.

Stirling and City of Vincent councils have agreed to realign their borders in North Perth.

The current boundary that runs north along Charles Street from Green Street will change so it will instead runs in a straight line from Green to where it meets Walcott Street.

Stirling will absorb the additional land, which comprises the north-eastern section of the road and some public open space next to Moora Lane.

The current boundary (in red) and proposed new border (yellow).

Vincent will cover costs associated with transferring the land but Stirling will become responsible for management, including future maintenance and running costs of the bore and ancillary services.

Main Roads is upgrading the intersection and the junction to the west where Charles meets Wiluna Street and Wanneroo Road, and will continue to foot the bill for these road works.

The two councils previously considered the land swap in 2015 but at the time it was not supported by Vincent and Stirling deemed it of no financial or aesthetic benefit.

The Local Government Advisory Board will decide whether to approve the boundary realignment.
