Stirling Scene Kambarang 2019

CEO’s message

including the Princess Wallington Community Parkland project, the Des Penman Pavilion upgrade and close to $5 million in upgrades to other recreational facilities across the City. The City of Stirling will also start construction of the Stephenson Avenue extension as part of the Stirling City Centre project. The first phase will begin in early 2020 and will extend Stephenson Avenue from Scarborough Beach Road to Cedric Street and connect key activity hubs, including Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre, the Osborne Park industrial area and Stirling City Centre. This upgraded infrastructure will reduce traffic congestion along Scarborough Beach Road, unlock significant private investment and create more jobs in Perth’s second CBD. While more improvements are planned for Robinson Reserve, stage one works are now complete. Recent updates include a new playground that offers lots of fun activities for youngsters such as rope climbing, a birds nest swing and natural play areas. A new barbeque area with picnic tables, seating and shelters as well as a half-court for sports are also now available to the community. Stage one works also included the replacement of the boundary fence, oval irrigation, turf replacement and the addition of 120 new trees. Read the article on Page 3 for more details about the reserve’s new public artwork. Butlers Reserve (Scarborough) Renovations to clubrooms at the reserve included new equipment storage for sporting clubs, external and internal painting, refurbished toilets and change rooms, a new universal accessible toilet as well as a brand-new roof with skylights. In addition to the clubroom updates, kitchen and kiosk facilities were upgraded and existing lighting replaced with motion sensor-activated energy efficient (LED) fittings.

Our City To give you an insight into the progress on some of the City’s projects, here is a summary of updates that have occurred during the past few months:

Des Penman Reserve (Nollamara) The City has received $900,000 in federal and state government funding to support the redevelopment of the central sports clubroom facility at Des Penman Reserve. The upgrades will help deliver improved amenities including change rooms and storage areas for female and male sports clubs. Planning for the project is underway and construction is due to start in 2020. Stirling City Centre Stage one of the project involves construction of the Stephenson Avenue extension and a new freeway interchange. These works will pave the way for Ellen Stirling Boulevard to become a street dedicated to shopping and dining. It will also enable the creation of new lots for a mix of residential and commercial opportunities. The $750 million Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre redevelopment includes the creation of a new town square as well as shops, cafes and alfresco dining. The Westfield redevelopment recently secured a revised development approval with the aim of starting related works this year.
