The City of Swan invites residents and ratepayers to learn more about the City’s priorities and major projects for the coming years.
The City has released its Corporate Business Plan (CBP), which provides an overview of the organisation, community profiles, key priorities and project milestones, setting out the City’s strategic direction for the next four years.
Our priority areas for the next four years include our major projects and recovery.
- The upgrade and extension of Stock Road, extending the existing road to connect Tonkin Highway to Great Northern Highway;
- Upgrading the Henley Brook and Gnangara Road Roundabout to dual carriageway;
- Completing construction of the Dayton District Open Space, which will provide a recreational space for residents;
- Complete the refurbishment of Swan Active Midland which includes the renewal of the existing aquatic and recreational facility; and
- Complete construction of the Ellenbrook Youth Hub
City staff, in addition to staff from the Shire of Mundaring, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Department of Communities and Red Cross have been working collaboratively to provide support to the affected communities of the Wooroloo bushfire.
The City is also reviewing in detail the recommendations of the independent review into the bushfire to identify actions that can be implemented locally to continue to improve community preparedness and response.
These priorities are informed via the City’s advocacy efforts. Throughout the year, the City works closely with stakeholders from industry, government and the community to advocate for positive change, resources and services for the community and to secure funding for projects.
City of Swan Mayor Cr David Lucas said Council had set a number of strategically significant priorities to enrich the lifestyle of our residents and ratepayers.
“Our key advocacy priorities for the coming year include the Benara Road Dual carriageway, Bullsbrook drinking water security, Gnangarra Road upgrades and youth and social services,” he said.
“The City’s advocacy program enables large projects such as Ellenbrook Youth Hub and Helena River Bridge to be delivered successfully.”
