Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre

The Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre is located approximately six kilometres south-east of central Perth and is one of five specialised activity centres identified in the Western Australian Planning Commission’s draft  Perth and Peel@3.5million suite of documents.

Specialised activity centres are places that have dedicated functions focused on regionally significant economic or institutional activities. They present the opportunity for the development of activities complementary to the centre’s primary uses and for the provision of a high level of amenity for residents, workers and visitors.

The Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre is a significant employment centre based around education, innovation, technology and research activities as well as a mix of other activities that support the diversification of the Western Australian economy.

Draft Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre Structure Plan

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) sought public comment on the draft Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre Structure Plan.

Submissions closed 17 February 2017 and late submissions will not be considered.

The draft Structure Plan has been prepared to provide strategic guidance for further planning and development of the activity centre. It promotes an urbanised environment with improved amenity and an increased mix of land uses. Residential diversity in convenient locations close to places of employment and education is anticipated to make Bentley-Curtin an attractive choice for education, employment and living.

The draft structure plan includes proposals to:

  • continue building on the State’s science, research, technology and innovation focus
  • expand as a vibrant hub for people to meet and exchange ideas
  • make better use of vacant and underutilised land close to central Perth and recreation areas
  • facilitate opportunities to live close to work
  • be a more sustainable and diverse centre closely linked to efficient public transport.

The WAPC will consider all submissions before finalising the Structure Plan. The final structure plan will be used to inform more detailed planning.
