Last chance to provide feedback on vision for Bunbury’s waterfront

Thursday, 22 October 2015

Time is running out for people to have their say about the vision to transform Bunbury's waterfront that was presented to the public earlier this month.

People have until 9am on Thursday October 29 to share their views about what's proposed and have their feedback considered in the finalisation of the vision.

With the aim of improving the city's shorelines for community use, as well as boosting the tourism and marine industries, the vision sets out a plan to breathe new life into the city's waterfront.

The first stage of the proposal includes a redevelopment of the Dolphin Discovery Centre into a world-class facility and the revitalisation of the Koombana Bay foreshore.

Future stages include the enhancement of public open space along Casuarina Drive, and upgrades to Jetty Road.

Also envisioned is the transformation of Casuarina Boat Harbour into a vibrant mixed-use, multi-storey precinct with a marina and marine industry facilities.

South West Development Commission chief executive officer Don Punch encouraged people to voice their opinions about the vision.

"We have an opportunity to take underused areas of the city and convert them into thriving, vibrant places that produce long-term community and economic benefits," he said.

"But it is important we get it right, and we want to know whether the vision that has been created fits with your vision of where Bunbury is heading."

People are encouraged to find out more about the vision by visiting www.swdc.wa.gov.au or the displays located in the foyer of the Bunbury Tower as well as at Chamber House, Bunbury Public Library, and the City of Bunbury administration building.

The survey can be completed online at www.swdc.wa.gov.au, and feedback forms can be requested by phoning the South West Development Commission on 9792 2000 or from its office on the ninth floor of the Bunbury Tower
