Montario Quarter Place Plan, Heritage Interpretation and Community Development Plan

LANDCORP | Shenton Park, WA

THE
PLACE

The former Shenton Park Hospital, now known as Montario Quarter, is a unique place with a strong history and local identity. From its early days as a hospital and isolation unit for infectious disease, it has remained an important state government asset and includes heritage listed buildings such as Victoria House and Sir George Bedbrook Spinal Unit. In 2014, services were relocated to the State Rehabilitation Centre at Fiona Stanley Hospital and the site is now a rare infill opportunity for integrated urban living.

OUR
ROLE

To support the master planning process, element were appointed to complete a Community Development Plan. This strategic document assessed the existing and future needs of the local community, the availability of current infrastructure, facilities and services and defined a framework for community development, meeting the Green Star Communities National Framework guidelines. A series of unique community development themes were created along with a customised implementation plan to guide programming and place activation, community capacity building, governance and management as well as stakeholder engagement and communications. We also documented the site’s history into a user friendly brochure for community and marketing use.

OUTCOMES

The Community Development Plan aligns with the Green Star Communities Framework Liveability Principles and provides a guiding document for community development activity that bring LandCorp’s vision for the site to life. The actions and strategies were designed to empower residents and community groups to ultimately take stewardship. The work also integrates community development initiatives to support project positioning, marketing and sales strategies.
