Allen Park Master Plan

Are you a user of the Allen Park Precinct, or do you have an interest or interested in the future of the Precinct? If so, the City invites you to participate in the community engagement activities to plan for its future. Your feedback will help shape its future.

The Allen Park Precinct is an important asset for the community. In recognition, the City is embarking on a master plan for the precinct to provide a framework for any future development. It will consider existing conservation efforts and the heritage of the area, matched with the park’s links to nearby beaches and its regional role as a central sporting facility in the western suburbs. The process will investigate the optimal mix of various sports at the reserve, along with the established environmental area, while balancing access to the community for casual and passive recreation purposes.

Consultancy company, ABV Leisure Consultancy has been appointed by the City to prepare the master plan including the community engagement activities.

The project is in the very early stages and the local community and key stakeholders will be consulted, engaged and informed at every step of the way. Information will be published here as the project develops to keep the community informed and involved. To keep updated, check out this page regularly as the page will continue to develop and provide new information as the project progresses.

Master Plan Process

The City and the Consultant team will undertake a number of processes in the master plan development:

  • Consult with identified key stakeholders to identify uses, issues and needs, now and into the future
  • Engage with the community about what is important to them
  • Undertake a detailed analysis of the demographic profile and projections
  • Undertake a site analysis to identifying constraints, existing vegetation and other features
  • Review of surrounding neighbourhoods and consult with government agencies
  • Undertake a benchmark analysis and identify opportunities
  • Undertake an environmental and heritage analysis
  • Analyse current parking and traffic issues and ensure these are considered in any future plans.

All of that information will be assessed and considered in developing the draft master plan. The draft plan will then be available for community input and feedback before the final plan is developed.

Please note, all information placed on this engagement page will be referred to the Consultants.
