Rokeby Road streetscape works underway

In a new chapter for Rokeby Road, work is underway to create a more pedestrian-friendly and welcoming space, adding a contemporary feel to the existing character of the town centre.
Now that the Water Corporation has finished its Rokeby Road works between Roberts and Bagot roads, we’re continuing with our $4 million streetscape upgrade.
What you can expect
  • resurfaced road
  • planter boxes along a flattened median strip
  • several raised bays perfect for alfresco dining
  • improved street furniture
  • new multi-use light poles.
Our work schedule has been designed to minimise disruption for local businesses, visitors and residents, and reach completion as quickly as possible. Find out more about the Rokeby Road streetscape enhancement on our website.
Ward review

There is still time to have your say on how you are represented in the ward and representation review. Recent changes to the city’s borders and statutory requirements have brought about the need to review our ward structure and representation levels.
Sharing your thoughts is simple. Visit Have your say Subiaco, review the discussion paper and make a submission on your preferred option, or complete a hard copy submission at Subiaco Library or the Administration Centre. Submissions close on Tuesday 11 October at 5pm.

Subiaco Activity Centre Plan

We recently asked you to have your say on the Subiaco Activity Centre Plan, which provides a vision and long-term planning framework for the future of the Subiaco Town Centre.
During consultation, we received more than one hundred responses to questions about land use, height, heritage, population, transport and movement to guide the future of the plan.
After reviewing your feedback, Council endorsed the Subiaco Activity Centre Plan at its September meeting, which will now be sent to the Western Australian Planning Commission for final approval. Approval from the planning commission can take up to 120 days, so keep an eye out for updates on the progress of the plan.
The plan has been prepared in accordance with State Planning Policy 4.2 – Activity Centres for Perth and Peel and celebrates what makes Subiaco unique while embracing a bright future for our city.

Top tips for great gardens

Spring has well and truly sprung. If you're thinking of entering the Sustainable Verge and Garden Award, get the most out of your garden with these tips from our expert gardeners.

Mulch helps to stop weeds and retain soil moisture while improving overall soil health. For best results, place around 75mm of mulch around your plants.

Spring is a great time to save some water. With recent rainfall, check your reticulation system for leaks and faults and adjust your sprinkler run times to suit spring conditions.

Spring is the perfect time to get your tomatoes and summer vegetables planted in time for harvesting over Christmas. If you’re planting perennials, get them in quick so they’re established before temperatures rise.
