Environmental Enhancement
+ Sustainability


Increase the tree canopies and provide opportunities for
better public space amenity so you can enjoy a visit to the Bayswater Town Centre without the need for a car.

Why This Is A Key Focus Area

  • Responding to the responsibility to create an alternative to urban sprawl
  • Enjoyment of the vibrant village experience
  • Create opportunities for more street tree canopy, shade and better public space amenity
  • A vibrant town centre supports increased pedestrian activity and alternatives to car use
  • Increased density = more green spaces and less sprawl in the suburbs

Tools We Need To Support This Key Focus Area

  • WAPC endorsed and approved Activity Centre Plan
  • Design Guidelines
  • Design Advisory Commitee
  • Development Contributions Scheme

Evidence That Supports This Key Focus Area

Headline: State a Bold Fact that the Evidence Supports for this Key Focus Area

For An Active, Livable, Secure And Walkable Neighbourhood, Density is the Key.

Sub Headline ; Supports the Headline  + inspires the reader to keep reading...

Density  creates viability for economic development while increasing the opportunity  and convenience for local residents to do more walking.

Write a paragraph to extend the information. Start with the link to the evidence document, and include a direct quote if you like.Let me know if it's a local, state, Australian or international reference.


The Heart Foundation takes a strong position to encourage density and development and their 2014 publication ‘Does Density Matter?’ states:

"It is density that can underpin the creation of walkable neighbourhoods

Density is important because a minimum threshold of population density ensures local shops and services are more viable situated closer to where people live, and increase the opportunists and convenience of local residents to do more walking."

The built environment is a fundamental element to support active living and increase the ‘walkability’ of a neighbourhood. A more walkable environment, not only improves the physical and mental health of residents, it has important triple bottom line impacts. 


In the case above there is more than a paragraph so I will link it to a blog article or create a "content reveal" or something, so if you have more to write, then do so. More is welcome, but getting a paragraph is better than more!
