Esperance Supertowns Town Centre Master Plan

SHIRE OF ESPERANCE | Esperance, WA

THE
PLACE

Home to almost 10,000 people, Esperance is one of the most progressive and modern country communities in Australia; however, it is both blessed and cursed by its isolated location. Esperance sought to build on its isolation and reduce its dependence on external drivers for growth and economic sustainability.

OUR
ROLE

Working extensively with the community and stakeholders we developed a Growth and Implementation Plan to assist with securing funding as part of the state government’s SuperTowns program, building on the character and charm of the town. A suite of integrated projects was conceived and illustrated including:

  • redevelopment of the waterfront;
  • town centre revitalisation strategies and
  • employment creation and attraction strategies.

OUTCOMES

The Department of Regional Development and Lands has announced its support for these three key projects. Community enterprise has emerged as a key strength for this town with other drivers being tourism and enhancing key industries that already exist. Consolidation and improved levels of service will ultimately seek to attract and retain people to live and stay in Esperance.

WHAT WE DELIVERED
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Planning advice
  • Growth planning
  • Urban design
