Mount Hawthorn Town Centre Place Plan

Published: Thursday, 26 September 2019 at 9:00:00 AM

Last week, Council reviewed community feedback and approved the Mount Hawthorn Town Centre Place Plan.

Place Plans are the City's 'place based' strategic documents that help guide the direction of our town centres. By taking a place-based approach, we can effectively support our unique and vibrant town centres to make Vincent a great place for the whole community.

The Mount Hawthorn Town Centre Place Plan outlines all major initiatives to be implemented in the Mount Hawthorn Town Centre over the next four years and was developed in line with the Mt Hawthorn Hub's strategic Action Plan.

The Place Plan is divided into three key focus areas, each with specific actions and a central goal.

01 | Activity

The first focus area sets out the actions that will help Mount Hawthorn reach its activation and economic potential.

02 | Movement

The actions in the second focus area will enhance the pedestrian and cycling environment in the town centre.

03 | Character

The third and final focus area aims to strengthen the town centre's unique sense of place.
