Engaging with the Community

Help Shape the Future For Subi East

There will be several opportunities for the community to provide feedback and help shape planning for Subi East. We have just started studies and investigations of the development area and it will take months before these are complete and the results analysed. This information is essential to help us form a clear understanding of what each precinct has the potential to offer: how they will integrate with the surrounding communities; how they will reflect the deep Aboriginal connection to the area; and how they can complement the rich cultural and heritage values associated with Subiaco.

Whilst it is still early days, if you have any questions or concerns please contact us: subieast@landcorp.com.au. You can also register to receive project updates using the "Stay Informed" button found on the Overview page (see navigation bar above).


Subiaco Oval Grandstands

An application for the demolition of the Subiaco Oval grandstands has been submitted to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA), marking a major step towards redevelopment of the Subi East precinct.  

MRA invited comment on the development application for demolition: Subiaco Oval grandstands and associated infrastructure, Lot 12732 (No. 304) Roberts Road, Subiaco. Public comment closed on 19 September 2018.

Heritage Inventory

The public comment period for the draft Subiaco Redevelopment Area Heritage Inventory closed 10 August 2018. 

Community Survey

LandCorp and the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) asked a local independent research firm to run a survey of nearby residents, businesses and visitors to help shape the vision for the Subi East project.

In the week commencing 23 July 2018, those within the survey area received a flyer in their letterboxes containing information on how to participate. The survey closed 5 August.


Your Stories

As one of Perth's oldest suburbs, we have no doubt that there are many untold stories out there which relate to the Subi East project area - particularly the Oval and PMH, though any anecdotes would be wonderful. We would love to hear some of those stories (and pictures if you have any) - and with your permission, share them with the community.

In the next few months we will be launching an interactive website where you can lodge your stories and images - or just shoot the breeze about plans for Subi East. Stay tuned! (You can also register through the Stay Informed button on the Overview page).


The Traditional Custodians

On behalf of the State Government, we are committed to reflecting and rejoicing Aboriginal heritage. It is our intention for Subi East to further build on much of the work that has already been delivered through projects such as the MRA's Yagan Square, Elizabeth Quay and of course Subi Centro, to name just a few. To help guide on this path, we have commenced engagement with the Whadjuk Working Party.

For Aboriginal people "country" is not just the land, creeks, rock outcrops, hills and waterholes. Country includes all living things: people, plants and animals. It encompasses the seasons, stories and creation spirits. It is both a place of belonging and a way of believing. The Aboriginal knowledge of country has been sustained through the generations and is expressed in mythology, songs, stories, dance and art.
