Ask Yourself: Where will your children live?

Without a diverse choice of housing in Bayswater the millennials are out priced and the baby boomers can't downsize to age in place.

Why This Is A Key Focus Area

  • Bayswater lacks housing choices as outlined in the City of Bayswater Local Housing Strategy 2012
  • Millennials, Baby Boomers and Empty Nesters have very few housing options
  • Ask yourself: where will your children live?
  • Mixed use development provides safety after hours through passive surveillance
  • Mixed use development provides a mix of ages within the centre of the community
  • Allows for aging in place
  • Future proofing your local suburb

Tools We Need To Support This Key Focus Area

  • Planning documents that encourage mixed uses
  • WAPC endorsed and approved Activity Centre Plan
  • Design Guidelines
  • Design Advisory Commitee
  • Robust planning documents

Future Bayswater: Future Vision

What is wanted? A livable, vibrant and connected Town Centre.
Why? To become a "go-to" destination rather than a "go through" in desperation.
How to do this? By supporting a comprehensive Future Vision via an Activity Centre Plan.
Why Bayswater? It's a strategic inner urban hub that hasn't realised its full potential ... yet.
