STIRLING council has tried to placate business owners in Mt Lawley by saying designs for a plaza on Beaufort Street aren’t set in stone.
Last week the Voice heard from landowners and business people dissatisfied with the consultation process, loathe to lose any car bays to the council’s plaza plan in the public car park just north of Walcott Street.
Stirling’s infrastructure director Michael Littleton says the plaza is just one aspect of a broader streetscape study and came from two workshops.
“At this stage, it is just a proposal. The piazza/plaza, along with all other elements that form the streetscape study will be the subject of further community consultation and engagement, which will kick off next week,” Mr Littleton said.
Consultation will be online at yoursay.stirling.wa.gov.au until September 30. A drop-in session will be at the Mt Lawley Bowling Club on August 28 from 6-8pm, and a “listening post” at the car park on August 31 from 10am-1pm.
“The city and council want the same outcome for the Mt Lawley area as its residents and local businesses – a vibrant, active and beautified town centre,” Mr Littleton said.
“We would love the local residents and businesses to continue to collaborate with us and get involved in the next steps of the streetscape study so we can deliver a final plan that we can all be proud of.”
