ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Economic Development is the impetus behind vibrant hubs.
It's important that the planning regulations that attract investors to Bayswater are robust as well as supportive.

Why This Is A Key Focus Area

  • There is an urgent need to attract investors/developers to create a retail/hospitality services and lifestyle hub to rival Maylands and Mt Lawley
  • Planning regulations need to be robust, consistent and supportive to attract investors, otherwise they go elsewhere
  • A vibrant hub offers local job opportunities
  • A vibrant hub attracts interested and involved community members
  • A vibrant hub offers needs regular activities and events via 'Placemaking'

Tools We Need to Support This Key Focus Area

  • Economic Development Strategy is required for the Town Centre
  • Demographic and Population Studies including migration figures
  • Built Form Economic Study
  • Public Space improvement strategy including funding sourced from rates and  Development Contributions Schemes

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.
