Since Council adopted the vision for the Town Centre in May 2019, the Town has been working on the draft Mosman Park Town Centre Plan (TCP) which will be the vehicle that delivers the vision for the Town Centre. The TCP is a spatial policy and action plan intended to build upon the inherent characteristics of the Town Centre and the wider Mosman Park locality. The Plan is designed to deliver the community vision for the Town Centre as follows:
“An urban village which blends architecture, landscape and activity to create a busy and visually appealing place that remembers its past and is distinctive from its surrounds.”
To deliver the vision for the Town Centre, the TCP comprises a number of proposed enacting strategies and key initiatives. The four (4) enacting strategies are:
In the short term (0-5 years), the focus will be to achieve small wins in activation and beautification of the area while initiatives that require the co-operation of external stakeholders (e.g. State Government, Main Roads, other local governments) are likely to be implemented over the longer term (10+ years).
How can i have my say on the draft Town Centre Plan?
The draft TCP will be tabled at the December Ordinary Council Meeting where, if supported in-principle, will be advertised to the public for a period of no less than three months commencing no earlier than February 2020. The draft TCP will be advertised in the local newspaper, on the Town's website, social media platforms, public notice boards and signage within the public realm. At this time, comments will be invited to be submitted.
The submissions received during the public consultation period will assist the Town in revising the TCP.

Report to December Council Meeting with Draft Mosman Park TCP & LPP 20 (Available from Friday, 6 December)
At the Ordinary Council Meeting on 28 May 2019, Council adopted the Town Centre Vision. The Vision was informed through many useful submissions that we received through workshop attendance and completion of surveys.
The adoption of this Vision paves the way for short-term and long-term improvements to the Town Centre Area to be rolled out, both by the Town and by private landowners. We invite you to see the Vision:
Thank you to everyone who attended a workshop or completed a survey. We received many useful submissions. Our consultant has prepared a final report based on the proposed initiatives and with the community's feedback. Council is now considering this report and it will be released soon.
For those who were unable to attend one of the workshops in September, a copy of the presentation is available for download below. Once you have read through the presentation, please complete an online survey or email in a submission. The comment period will close in one month on 14 October.
In November 2017 we asked the community share their vision of the Mosman Park Town Centre and received valuable feedback with over 500 suggestions.
We have also undertaken an architectural and landscape analysis of the Town Centre Area.
Combining the feedback from the community with this analysis, we have created a draft vision for the Town Centre including public realm improvements, and how private development should occur that will fit into this vision.
We invite you to provide feedback on this this draft vision and help us to fine tune it by attending one of two community workshops or completing an online survey.
There will be two community workshops at the Town’s Administration Office:
The workshops will provide an overview of the feedback received from the community and the architectural and landscape analysis. We then will explain the draft vision and work through it will attendees.
Please register for the workshops by clicking here (LINK CLOSED) or phone us on 9384 1633.
The feedback and analysis and the draft vision will be uploaded to this page after the workshops from 15 September. There will then be an opportunity for those unable to attend the workshops to review the material and provide feedback in an online survey. This will be available until 8 October.
The preliminary consultation period for the Mosman Park Town Centre Study project has now closed and we would sincerely like to thank everyone that has taken the time to complete an online survey, provide us with a written submission or attended a workshop.
In total, the Town received 53 online surveys, 12 written submissions and 40 people attended the four workshops over the month of November 2017.
We are now working to sort through the more than 500 individual suggestions and comments received. There has been a wide variety of input which may result in small or big changes to the area, with the big changes likely to take many years to implement.
The comments have been categorised into the following three categories and some of what was suggested is listed below:
NOTE: these ideas are taken from the feedback received and must be reviewed. They may or may not be included in the final set of recommendations to Council.
The next steps from here include:
The Town is also considering to establish a steering committee / working group to assist during the course of this project. This group will act as a ‘sounding board’ for many of the initiatives and individual items resulting from this project. The group will not have decision making powers, but will inform recommendations to Council. Details on how the group will operate, such as meeting schedules or terms of references, are not yet available. Should you wish to nominate for a seat on this group please contact LPickersgill@mosmanpark.wa.gov.au.
The last of the four workshops was held last night. We have had over 40 people attend workshops and over 50 submissions have been received. The survey closure date has been extended until 31 December 2017 so please encourage neighbours and friends to provide feedback here.
If you missed out on attending a workshop, please reach out to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org. If sufficient interest is generated we will hold another workshop in the new year.
We are still able to host one-on-one sessions if this is preferred. Please phone our office to schedule an appointment.
The survey is now available for access here.
Places are still available for the workshops so please register. The first workshop will be held this Thursday 9 November at 6pm.
The Mosman Park Town Centre, bounded by Stirling Highway, Johnson, Monument and St Leonards Streets, will experience an exciting transformation.
Did you know the Mosman Park Town Centre is changing? Soon we will have:
• Opportunities for higher density, creating more opportunities for re-development
• Potential for multi-storey dwellings, even as high as six storeys, on Glyde and Stuart Streets and on Stirling Highway
• Three storey high developments permitted on St Leonards Street and Willis Street
Enhanced development opportunities will open up our Town to exciting opportunities for new businesses and new residential communities.
We want to hear what your vision, expectations and hopes are for the future of the area. The input of residents, business owners, community groups and visitors will shape this area into a vibrant and attractive town centre to live, work and play in.
We engaged planning consultants RobertsDay to undertake a detailed opportunities and constraints analysis of the Town Centre. The full report is available HERE.
The consultation period closes on 2 December 2017.
Information will be published on this page as the project develops to keep you informed and involved.
Help us shape the future of your area!
