What do you feel is best for the Waratah Avenue village precinct in Dalkeith?


Whether you work, visit or live in the area, own a property or run a business, the City of Nedlands want to hear from you.  


The first stage of the $1.2 million project relates to Waratah Avenue between Alexander and Adelma Roads with concept plans developed for an upgraded streetscape and a new raised pedestrian-friendly crossing near the C3 Church.


Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said previous community feedback had indicated the need for a wider footpath, suitable for cafe alfresco areas and improved accessibility for pedestrians, leading to the Waratah Avenue Place-Making Strategy.


“Stage one is designed to improve pedestrian access to the shopping strip and village while, at the same time, slowing vehicle speeds to improve pedestrian safety,” he said.


“There will be new areas for picturesque street trees and planter boxes, which will also provide a separation between pedestrians and vehicles


“The design requirements will result in a decrease of about 10 car parking bays but, overall, 294 will remain in the precinct.


“The concept plans, frequently asked questions and range of other information is available at, making it the best place for people to provide feedback and share their thoughts.”


Community information sessions will also be held at Nedlands Community Care at 97 Waratah Avenue from 4pm-5pm and 5.30pm-6.30pm, September 12.


“Stage one of the project will predominantly be supported by municipal funding – but the $205,000 road resurfacing component will have two-thirds funded by the Main Roads WA,” Mr Hipkins said.


“A proposed stage two of the Waratah Avenue redevelopment involves a new roundabout at the Waratah Avenue and Alexander Road intersection and upgrades to Genesta Park and Genesta Crescent.”


The feedback period closes October 1. Council is scheduled to consider the project, including the community consultation results, at its November 13 committee meeting and November 27 council meeting.
