Industrial & Commercial Strategy


Local Planning Strategy MapThe Local Planning Strategy incorporates a Commercial Strategy and an Industrial Strategy. (Pages 30 – 39)

The Industrial Strategy examines the very diverse mix of business and lot sizes within the industrial zone, located generally north of the railway and west along Collier Road.  Maintaining the diverse mix of industries and lot sizes is seen as critical to the long term future of the industrial zone.  The Industrial Strategy addresses the need for a suitable interface between industrial and residential land uses, and the promotion of Collier Road as the central spine in terms of its traffic function and commercial exposure.  The strategy further seeks to facilitate the remediation and development of the vacant industrial land planned as “Tonkin Park Stage 2”.


Industrial StrategyThe Commercial Strategy confirms the Bassendean Town Centre as the primary commercial retail and civic centre of the municipality.  It promotes the “Enquiry by Design” initiatives for the “main street” pedestrian retail area adjacent to the railway, whilst also ensuring that the overall importance of the Bassendean Village Shopping Centre is not undermined. The Bassendean Town Centre is divided into three (3) distinct sub-precincts, each having a different but complimentary function that contributes to the overall vitality of the town centre.  The other commercial areas dispersed beyond the Town Centre are contained as local centres only.
