WITH Bullsbrook’s population expected to grow, the City of Swan is seeking community feedback to guide its planning.

The City said people’s comments would help define the Bullsbrook local area plan to identify local issues and establish the vision and objectives for the region.

Mayor Mick Wainwright said consultation was vital to ensure the City had a balanced understanding of the community’s views.

“Public involvement brings more information to the table and means the City can make better decisions for its community,” he said.

North ward councillor Kevin Bailey said the plan would focus on preparing for managing growth and community service provision.

“There are significant plans for Bullsbrook in the near future, with further residential, commercial and industrial growth on the horizon,” he said.

“The region’s population is expected to jump from just over 5000 people in 2017 to more than 20,000 by 2036.”

Bullsbrook local area covers East and West Bullsbrook.

The City will host a workshop at Pickett Park Hall in Bullsbrook on June 13, at 6.30pm, with registration at 6.15pm.

Comments at the workshop will be considered for a final draft document to be presented to the council for endorsement.

To register for the workshop email localareaplanning@swan.wa.gov.au or call 9267 9288 by June 9.

The Bullsbrook plan discussion paper on themes and issues affecting Bullsbrook is available at www.swan.wa.gov.au/haveyoursay.

People not attending the workshop, can have their say in an online survey after the workshop.
