The Heart of Beaconsfield

Council adopted the Heart of Beaconsfield masterplan in April 2021.

The City has developed a draft masterplan for the Heart of Beaconsfield to help guide development of the area into the future.

Over the past few years, there have been lots of changes happening in the suburb of Beaconsfield. South Fremantle High School became Fremantle College, TAFE has relocated, and the Department of Communities would like to update and build new homes in the Davis Park precinct. These changes presented the opportunity for a coordinated approach to planning a more sustainable, liveable and accessible neighbourhood into the future, a project we have called the Heart of Beaconsfield.

Since 2017 we have been working with landowners and the community to develop a vision and a masterplan for the Heart of Beaconsfield including several key sites. The masterplan is a non-statutory document: its purpose is to make sure that when development happens across this area that it does so in a coordinated way by providing an overarching concept to inform (but not control) detailed planning of individual sites by their landowners.


What we heard

During 2017 and 2018 community members participated in visioning and concept workshops, attended open days and shared their thoughts with us online about what should be included in a masterplan for Beaconsfield.

From the valuable contributions we received, the key ideas were grouped into three broad themes which the plan sought to address:

  1. Tree retention and open space provision
  2. Housing choice and diversity of population
  3. Sense of place and community facilities

To find out more about how these themes informed the plan, download the information pack (7 MB) from the document library or click here.

In early 2021 comments were invited on the draft masterplan, both online and through an in-person information session at the Freo Farmers Market. We received feedback around height, residential density, community and recreational facilities, traffic and connectivity and green spaces. You can find out more about what we heard in the Q&A or the Community Engagement Report.

A number of comments were also made about recreation facilities and opportunities, and this input will be considered in the development of the City's Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan 2021-31.
