East End Revitalisation Program

The East End Revitalisation Program aims to improve the environment, character and quality of the East End precinct through revitalisation of the streetscape.

The streets of our city 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.

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 Masterplan included:

  • Increasing quality of the street network by continuing two-way traffic movement along Hay Street to Victoria Avenue
  • 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.

In 2014, initial work was completed in Hay Street between Barrack and Pier Streets to complement the new City of Perth Library and the Cathedral Square precinct.

East End Revitalisation Program

In May 2018, the Council endorsed the East End Revitalisation Program: 2018 Masterplan.

Key features of the 2018 Masterplan include:

  • A Pedestrian Priority Zone (PPZ) along Hay Street, between and including the Pier and Irwin Street intersections
  • Two-way street conversion of Hay Street between Pier Street to Victoria Avenue
  • Two-way street conversion of Irwin Street, south of Hay Street
  • Creation of social spaces for respite and relaxation
  • Creation of event spaces and associated infrastructure
  • Current on-street parking numbers maintained
  • Widened footpaths at key locations
  • Tree pits that capture rain water
  • Increase tree diversity and canopy cover in line with the City of Perth's Urban Forest Plan
  • New lighting, CCTV and associated infrastructure
  • Additional wayfinding signage
  • Cultural heritage interpretation
  • Additional WiFi availability
  • Public art work

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.

See the document library and FAQ's for more information on the Hay Street PPZ.
