The City of Melville is encouraging the community to get involved to help shape the future of the scenic Attadale Alfred Cove Foreshore.

The City of Melville is encouraging the community to get involved to help shape the future of the scenic Attadale Alfred Cove Foreshore through the rescheduled charrette program, facilitated on-site and online.

The City of Melville and independent consultants Element were able to hold the first day of the charrette program on Monday, 28 June 2021 before COVID-19 restrictions meant that the rest of the program needed to be rescheduled.

City of Melville Mayor the Hon. George Gear JP said the rescheduled Open Design Studio on Wednesday, 28 July and Community Workshop on Thursday, 29 July were opportunities for the community to provide feedback for an area that was important to them.

“We know from the community’s feedback that this area has outstanding natural beauty, rich biodiversity, deep and ancient cultural, and historical importance as well as diverse sporting and recreation activities that are enjoyed by a wide variety of users, which underlies the importance of recommencing this community engagement process,” said Mayor Gear.

“The Open Design Studio and Community Workshop will assist us in capturing the key themes, ideas and a future vision to shape the Master Plan, which aligns with our vision for an inclusive, vibrant and sustainable future.

“If you’re unable to attend either of the events, you’re also invited to take part in the interactive virtual charrette, which will include daily updates from the in-person events.”

Registrations to the Community Workshop are required while the community are able to drop-in for the Open Design Studio without the need to register.

Stakeholders involved with the charrette will also include representatives from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Department of Transport and the Water Corporation.
