Community Consultation

The City of Bunbury regularly invites the community to have their say on council projects, plans for the future and policy development.

Current Consultations 

Future planning for the CBD

In 2018/19 the City of Bunbury will begin a CBD masterplan incorporating the proposed Civic and Cultural Precinct. We will also be reviewing the CBD parking trial.

Our brand new online engagement portal – Social Pinpoint – is an opportunity for City of Bunbury ratepayers and stakeholders to provide us with your ideas so that they can be incorporated into our CBD planning.

To engage click here and follow the instructions.

You will be invited to drag and drop a marker at the top of the page onto the map, and provide your comment.

There is also an ideas wall for you to contribute to.

The page will be open for engagement for exactly one month after the CBD Planning Forum at BREC; until 18 August 2018.

Both City of Bunbury and Greater Bunbury residents are invited to comment.

Further opportunities for feedback will be held at the following venues:

Friday 3 August 5pm to 7pm at Café 140 (includes free pizza!)

Saturday 11 August 11am to 4pm at the Festival of Japan, Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre

A report will be available for the public to view once feedback has been received and collated.​

Bunbury Racecourses Local Area Plan

The City of Bunbury, in partnership with Landcorp and in association with the South West Development Commission, is currently preparing a Local Area Plan for the Racecourses precinct, which comprises the Bunbury Trotting Club, Bunbury Turf Club, ‘Stables’ residential area and the Council depot.

The purpose of the Racecourses Local Area Plan is to provide a roadmap for the future growth and development of the site in a manner that recognises its unique physical and social qualities.

Effective community engagement is considered to be a critical component of the project and so a series of engagement activities will be undertaken.  These will assist in determining the community’s needs and values and in turn guiding future development and investment decisions in the local area.

For more info email or call the Project Manager, Mr Ben Deeley, on (08) 9792 7081.

Results are currently being collated for reivew.
