The aim of the Waterfront project is to deliver an iconic Mandurah foreshore precinct for people to meet, play and rest. Investing in a vibrant City Centre will support local tourism and local jobs for long term economic well-being.

Extensive consultation with our local community and stakeholders in 2018 set the vision and priorities for the upgrade of key precincts in the Mandurah City Waterfront. The Waterfront Community Vision report provides a summary of this process.

$10 million has been committed by the State Government as part of its Plan for Peel and $7 million from the Federal Government. This funding will contribute to delivering the proposals for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct and the Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct, commencing in mid-2020 with completion in 2022. This City of Mandurah has also contributed $5 million to the project including the Smart Street Redevelopment.

In November 2018, we asked the community to provide feedback on concept proposals prepared for these priority City Centre Waterfront focus areas;

There was overwhelming community support for the City Centre Waterfront proposals. A summary of the Community Engagement process and findings is available here.

Council adopted the City Centre Waterfront concept plans at its meeting on 26 February 2019. The concept plans have since been used to guide the further planning and detail design development for the upgrade proposals in order to facilitate on-ground works commencing in May 2020.

Connecting the City Centre with the Waterfront, the Smart Street Precinct will also be transformed with the primary focus being to create an adaptable, pedestrian-focused, activated street. The final upgrade design was adopted by Council at its meeting on 30 April 2019. Council has been requested to allocate $2.5 million towards implementing the infrastructure upgrade proposals over the next two financial years.
