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.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the community workshop held on Wednesday evening for the Allen Park Master Plan. Over 60 people attended who reviewed the ideas and options (refer document library).

    ABV Leisure provided a short presentation with question and answer opportunities. ABV then presented options for the precinct that were developed based on the previous consultation. The options were presented to generate discussion and feedback as part of the community engagement process. They were not recommendations and not fixed. Participants then undertook three activities in small groups:

    ABV Leisure provided a short presentation with question and answer opportunities. ABV then presented options for the precinct that were developed based on the previous consultation. The options were presented to generate discussion and feedback as part of the community engagement process. They were not recommendations and not fixed. Participants then undertook three activities in small groups:

    • Activity 1 – As a group, participants looked at Allen Park split into three separate maps showing ‘overall precinct ideas’, tasked to discuss and decide what elements they liked, and which they didn’t like or needed improvement. Participants wrote their collective thoughts down on sticky notes placed on the maps using yellow for ‘likes’ and pink for elements they though needed ‘re-thinking or improved’
    • Activity 2 – As a group, participants looked at three separate maps with ‘ideas and options’, tasked to discuss and decide which ideas and options they liked, and which they didn’t like or needed improvement. Participants wrote their collective thoughts down on sticky notes placed on the maps using yellow for ‘likes’ and pink for elements they though needed ‘re-thinking or improved’
    • Activity 3 – As an individual, participants were given five stickers each to place on any of the six maps to indicate their preferences.

    After each activity one person from each table presented their thoughts on the elements/ideas the table liked the most, or needed the most improvement.

    A number of participants have provided positive feedback about the workshop.

    All of information has now been taken by the Consultants for analysis and for use in developing a draft Master Plan based on the feedback collated.

    If you didn't attend the workshop and would like to provide some feedback on the options and ideas explored, please read the documents in the document library and provide your feedback using the Forum tab provided.

    Once the draft Master Plan has been developed it will be published here on Your Voice for further feedback.
