A safe, environmentally friendly neighbourhood that puts people first. That’s our vision and we need your help to decide how that could look for North Perth and Mount Lawley.

The City of Vincent has the opportunity to make improvements and changes on and around Norfolk Street. There’s lots of options. From increasing park space, to creating slower traffic flows using a variety of methods that would make getting around by bike and on foot safer and easier.

We want your ideas and feedback. We want to know if a Safe Active Street is right for your neighbourhood and what that could look like?

The Safe Active Street program is an initiative of the Department of Transport. Using a range of improvements, local streets are upgraded to create an environment where traffic speeds are limited to 30 km/h and the volume of traffic is low. In most cases the streets have enhanced landscaping to help create an environment where people feel welcome and it becomes safer to walk and ride.

This project, jointly funded by Department of Transport and City of Vincent, will explore a potential Safe Active Street route which could include parts of Venn Street, Norfolk Street, Alma Road, Ethel Street and Throssell Street.

Here’s a map with the proposed route shown in green.

Ideas and Information Community Forums and Drop-in Sessions

The project has just started, the next step is a community forum. We’ll show some examples of streets and a range of traffic calming possibilities and we’d like to know what you think. There are two in-person forum opportunities plus an online option. There’s also a mid-week drop-in opportunity at North Perth Common.

It’s important to remember this is about creating the neighbourhood that Vincent residents will love to live in. We are asking what you want, and whether these ideas work for you or not.
