East End Revitalisation Program

EAST END REVITALISATION PROGRAM – STAY INFORMED

The East End Revitalisation Program aims to improve the environment, character and quality of the East End precinct through revitalisation of the streetscape in Hay, Pier and Irwin Streets. The program will support the creation of great streets; streets that are comfortable, safe and tree lined with plenty of invitations to stay

BACKGROUND

Originally known as the Hay Street East Masterplan, this project was initially approved by the City of Perth Council in 2014. Key elements of the 2018 Masterplan include:

  • Increasing quality of the street network by continuing two-way traffic movement along Hay Street to Victoria Avenue
  • Irwin Street Plaza
  • Hay Street Pedestrian Priority Zone
  • Wide footpaths to enhance the pedestrian environment and allow for a variety of activities to take place such as outdoor dining
  • Introduction of an integrated cycling route
  • High quality street furniture including new benches, bicycle parking, water fountains and enhanced lighting
  • Additional tree planting to help reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect, making the street cooler in summer and creating a pleasant place to meet and socialise.

HAY STREET PEDESTRIAN PRIORITY ZONE (PPZ)

Streets make up the majority of public space in our city. Streets play an important role as arteries to get around, as destinations, as well as offering the opportunity to socialise, conduct business, dine or sit and relax. The Hay Street PPZ will change the character of the street, providing more space and amenity for pedestrians, and less space for vehicles.

ONGOING STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

In the past six months, community consultation has been ongoing including targeted face to face meetings with key stakeholders and businesses within the project zone.

As we move closer to construction, during January and February, ongoing engagement will also include:

  • Engage Perth project updates
  • Invitations will be sent shortly to form a Community Construction Reference Group
  • Continued Project mailouts
  • Ongoing social media and marketing
  • Construction hoarding imagery, including imagery, commentary, key dates and timing
  • Project signboards, including imagery, commentary, key dates and timing
  • Opening day event
  • Banners and signage advertising the change in conditions
