What is happening?

    The City of Canning is seeking public comment on the Shelley Beach Park Master Plan final concepts. Three options have been prepared. The public will have the opportunity to view all three plans and provide feedback until close of business on Friday 7 February 2020.


    How can I have my say on the three options?

    To have your say please visit www.yoursaycanning.com.au/shelleybeach before close of business Friday 7 February 2020. Alternatively you can view the plans and fill in a hard copy form at our Administration Building, open from 8.15am to 5pm Monday to Friday at 1317 Albany Highway, Cannington.

    Should the above options not be suitable, you can email your feedback to customer@canning.wa.gov.au or contact us by phone on 1300 442 664. You may also mail your comments to City of Canning, Locked Bag 80, Welshpool WA 6986.


    What is a Master Plan?

    A Master Plan is a landscape plan that sets out how an area will be developed in the future. It shows the locations of the key elements.


    What has happened to date?

    • In 2017 the City engaged an external provider to survey residents in Shelley and Rossmoyne.
    • The need for further consultation was identified so coffee and chat sessions, an online forum and interactive place making workshops were conducted in mid-2018.
    • The City analysed the data in conjunction with the existing feedback and this was made available to the public in December 2018.
    • A brief for the Master Plan was developed in early 2019 and a Consultant Landscape Architect was appointed.
    • The Master Plans have been developed (directly informed by the data collected) with three options available for comment by the community during January 2020

    How will I be notified of the outcome?

    Once the feedback is collated it will be presented to Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 17 March. The outcome of this meeting will be made available on the City’s website, social media channels, Your Say page and through local newspapers. Those who have provided their feedback and contact details through the online engagement forum Your Say over the course of the project, will be advised of the outcome by email. 


    What about the rest of the Shelley Rossmoyne Foreshore?

    The ongoing management of the wider Shelley Rossmoyne Foreshore is guided by the Shelley Rossmoyne Foreshore Management Plan, which was endorsed by Council in September 2019. This plan will guide the future use and management of the foreshore over the next 10 years, ensuring the long term preservation of the site’s ecological, cultural and social values.


    What is the difference between a Master Plan and a Management Plan?

    A Landscape Master Plan identifies the key elements for the future development of an area and sets out where they will be located.

    A Management Plan identifies the key functions of an area and provides guidance for land managers to make sure management practices are appropriate and consistent over time.


    Will I have the opportunity for further input into the design process?

    Should Council determine to proceed with detail design development of Shelley Beach Park, there will be some limited opportunity for the community to be involved.  This most likely will be restricted to providing input into the design of a play area. All other aspects will be designed by an experienced team of external consultants and in-house City staff.
