Bunbury residents are being encouraged to have their say on the future of the amenities and landscaping along Casuarina Drive in the form of a survey.

Bunbury Development Committee chairwoman Robyn Fenech said it was important the redevelopment reflected the values of residents and recreational users.

“This is part of stage 2 of Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront,” she said.

“It is essentially a landscaping project that will join Jetty Road around to the old Outer Harbour.

“We want insight and ideas from the community, so we encourage you to complete the online survey.

“Information and suggestions will help shape the initial landscape design concept.”

Under the guidance of the committee, a number of organisations including LandCorp, the South West Development Commission and the City of Bunbury are working together to develop the project.

Ms Fenech said the committee was at the design stage.

“We will be looking at ways to provide formalised parking for BP Beach as well as opening up access across to the ocean,” she said.

“It is more of a passive space to work as a joiner between two areas of the Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project.”

Bunbury MLA Don Punch said the State Government would provide money for the project.

“I would encourage everyone to provide some feedback for this survey,” he said.

“Bunbury is going to live for a long time with the outcomes from the Bunbury Waterfront project.

“So it is important that people contribute to that so that we can make sure we get it right.”
