SUBIACO Oval is no more, with above-ground demolition works on the old stadium finally complete, 111 years after it opened.

The former grandstands, light towers and associated buildings have now been removed and the focus now shifts to the removal of below-ground infrastructure.

The Master Planning process will develop the detailed long-term plan for Subi East, providing a roadmap to guide future growth and development.

Over the past 18 months, the State Government has conducted an on-line survey, sent to 23,000 households, businesses and visitors, hosted community pop-up sessions attended by more than 180 local residents and undertaken extensive engagement around plans for Subi East.

The independent online survey found more than 70 per cent of people were positive about the Subi East project.

“Subi East will be one of the most significant Western Australian urban redevelopment projects ever undertaken, and will see the transformation of 35ha of land on the doorstep of the Perth CBD into a thriving community focused inner-city village,” Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said.

“Feedback in the lead-up to the Master Planning process has indicated broad support from the wider community for Subi East, which will breathe new life into one of Perth’s oldest and best-loved suburbs.

“The Master Planning process will allow us to consider some of the feedback and additional matters raised during engagement to date.

“The demolition of the remaining grandstands at Subiaco Oval marks a major milestone in the development and delivery of Subi East, which aims to deliver an iconic new gateway for Subiaco.”
