The City of Mandurah is preparing a Landscape Masterplan for Coodanup Foreshore Reserve, located on Peel Parade between Wanjeep Street and the end of John Street, Coodanup and through to the Serpentine River.

Input from the local community is greatly valued and is being used to inform the design process.

The City recognises the foreshore reserve as a valued community asset with well established facilities, trees and foreshore habitat and activities.

Why develop a Landscape Masterplan?

A framework is needed to update the previous 1999 Concept Plan to plan for upgrades, manage this valuable community asset and to address future opportunities while respecting local residents and the environmental values of this location.

The process to date?

Thank you to all residents and other stakeholders who provided input to develop the Coodanup Foreshore Masterplan during the August 2019 to June 2020 consultation.

The City asked local residents and the broader community to share their thoughts and comments on the vision for Coodanup Foreshore Reserve to guide the development of a Landscape Masterplan.

The first round of comments from residents and the local community were submitted to the City of Mandurah by Sunday 22 September 2019.

Consultation with key stakeholders continued through December 2019 to February 2020, including Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions, Peel Harvey Catchment Council, Winjan Aboriginal Corp, the Access and Inclusion Advisory Group and others, with earlier drafts of the Masterplan for reference.

To ensure the best possible outcomes for all stakeholders, the City has worked through a detailed process to develop the plan and provide a draft to residents and stakeholders for further comment prior to finalising the Masterplan.

Development of the current draft May 2020 Masterplan followed, and the plan was available for comment.

The City encouraged residents and stakeholders to have their say on the draft Masterplan which was available for comment from 8 May to 23 June 2020.

An all-day Information Drop in Session at the Coodanup Community Hall on 19 June 2020 provided an opportunity to view large size (A1) plans of the draft May 2020 Masterplan, and discuss them with staff, submit the survey and/or other written comments.

  • Masterplan Zone Plans zones 4 to 7

What does the Masterplan include?

The plan includes many elements that the community indicated are important through the earlier community consultation process and subsequent input from other key stakeholders.

The draft Masterplan aims to balance the competing demands for the space - retaining environmental and aesthetic values while continuing to provide for recreational activities.

The plan includes elements such as:

  • Areas for recreation - play and activity areas, and future upgrades
  • Public amenities including shelters, seating, barbecues, parking and lighting, toilets, signs
  • Viewing points, including viewing platforms and decks, and bird hide upgrade
  • Environmental and cultural interpretation included in landscape components
  • Path and trail connections and upgrades
  • Connections and access to the Estuary water
  • Grass and planted areas
  • Protection of existing trees
  • Mulch zones under trees to improve health and provide for succession planting and seedlings
  • Additional planting of trees and shrubs/ groundcovers / stormwater planting of reeds and sedges
  • Environmental considerations and management, including biodiversity, planting and fencing
  • Management of storm water outputs
  • Consideration of site context and uses of adjoining land, including future development of private land.
  • Additional planting to designated areas
  • Environmental considerations and management
  • Management of stormwater outputs.
