Riseley Street Structure Plan

CITY OF MELVILLE | Applecross, WA

THE
PLACE

As a growing urban destination, demand and capacity for new development surrounding Riseley Street was identified as a key priority for the City of Melville – leveraging the area’s role as an activity centre and key movement corridor. A structure plan was required to deliver clarity and intent regarding the area’s future role, character and development potential.

OUR
ROLE

We were appointed by the City to produce the Riseley Street Structure Plan. With previous studies not supported by the community, we utilised an approach that focused on stakeholder alignment, collaborative visioning and applying place making and precinct renewal principles to in turn improve the public realm, infrastructure provision and the visitor experience.

OUTCOMES

Our work resulted in a range of outcomes, including:

  • A stakeholder and community engagement program that enabled:
    • A common vision for Riseley Street;
    • A Community Reference Group to inform decision making;
    • Dialogue with land and property owners; and
    • Broad scale community involvement through on and offline channels.
  • A structure plan that:
    • Reflected community and stakeholder aspirations;
    • Established the local area planning framework;
    • Demonstrated context-responsive urban design;
    • Provided clarity of development intent and investment certainty;
    • Enabled improvement of public realm and infrastructure; and
    • Achieved broad stakeholder support.
