Guidelines set for Bayswater’s transformation

  • ​Final approval received for East-Bayswater Design Guidelines
  • Decision marks key milestone in Bayswater's revitalisation and transformation into a major transit and community hub
  • Community input key to development of planning framework
  • McGowan Government committed to delivering hubs around train stations

The revitalisation of the East-Bayswater project area is a step closer with the approval of the Bayswater Design Guidelines that will provide a roadmap for redevelopment.

The finalisation of the design guidelines marks a key milestone for the planning framework and transformation of the Bayswater town centre.

Community feedback helped shape the planning framework, with 977 survey responses informing the draft guidelines and 409 submissions received in response to the draft design guidelines between July 15 and August 26, 2021.

The final design guidelines ensure the preservation of Bayswater's heritage and culture, and underpin the revitalisation of the area to accommodate its future status as a transit hub.

They cover elements including building design and materials, building heights, setbacks, heritage considerations, sustainability and landscaping.

The redevelopment will support local businesses by ensuring the delivery of a diverse mix of housing types such as apartments, townhouses and affordable housing.

It will also increase the vibrancy and liveability of the town centre with more opportunities for hospitality, commercial and retail business, and new public spaces.

Once construction is complete, Bayswater Station will become the second busiest transport hub outside of the Perth CBD, with work underway on the construction of a new station.
