Parks and Wildlife Service officer Glen McLeod-Thorpe said the Perth Water precinct was currently evolving with several major projects underway, which would increase visitor numbers and a growing interest for tourist and commercial ventures. 

“The Perth Water Precinct Plan is being developed to guide future improvement of the precinct, its foreshores and abutting development interface in a more strategic manner for the wider benefit of all visitors to the area,” he said.

“It will establish a framework for the development of uses for the area based on landscape characteristics, community aspirations and environmental and cultural values including recreation, commercial nodes, public access, facilities and services infrastructure and foreshore protection.”

Development of the precinct plan involves the cities of Perth and South Perth, Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, Department of Transport, Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and Town of Victoria Park.
