Riseley Centre's Place Identity

Riseley Centre's Place Identity


Thank you for voting on Riseley Centre's Place Identity, co-designed by the Rise Up Riseley Town Team and a local Whadjuk Elder.

Last Updated: 29 April 2021

In conjunction with the Riseley Town Team and local Wadjuk Elders, the City of Melville has co-designed two concepts with an aim to identify the Riseley Centre as a place. This action was identified as part of the Riseley Centre Assessment project.


In 2019, community consultation revealed that community priorities for the Riseley Centre should be to create a streetscape that improves walk ability and vibrancy around local businesses, while improving movement, shading and seating where possible. It was also identified the need to communicate and identify the stories of the place.

Community feedback identified several themes which will guide and inform further placemaking conversations, activities and actions.

  • Places to pause – parklets, seating, shade and play
  • Colour and vibrancy – arts, events, activities, people and ambience
  • Riseley welcomes pedestrians and cyclists – walkability
  • Sensing our place – place brand and communication
  • Riseley communities – community spaces and opportunities
  • Riseley movement - balancing needs of motorists with the need to enjoy the area greening – trees, shade, planters, flowers and nature

Over recent months, we met with members in the community through the local town team and local Whadjuk Elder, Marie Taylor to identify the stories, colours and images that they believe represent the identity the Riseley Centre to inform the design brief for the initial concepts.

A workshop was held with the local Town Team to further refine the concept options and the community were invited to vote on the two designs.

We are now at the stage of the project to seek broad community vote on the two designs. The voted design will be used around the Riseley Centre and will be available for businesses and community groups to use when advertising activities in relation to the Centre.
