A Draft Structure Plan was prepared for the Armadale City Centre in 2018. One of the key recommendations from the report highlighted the need for the City to prepare a Public Realm Strategy for the Armadale City Centre to develop concepts for the future development of all the public realm areas within the City Centre. This includes the design of streets including verge and road width, tree planting and landscaping, lighting and street furniture and the design of public places (eg parks). In 2022 the City engaged Place Laboratory to prepare a Public Realm Strategy for a portion of the City Centre (Stage 1). On 27 March 2023 the Council adopted the Public Realm Strategy for Stage 1. An Implementation Plan is now being prepared to progress the actions identified in the Stage 1 Public Realm Strategy.

The study area for Stage 1 includes the following streets:

  • Church Avenue between Fourth Road and Jull Street;
  • Prospect Road;
  • Whitehead Street;
  • Third Road between Church Avenue and South Western Highway; and
  • Thomas Street.

In future the City will also prepare Public Realm Strategies for the remainder of the City Centre area subject to funding being approved by Council.
