Initial consultation across government and stadium users
Monday 30 April 2012
Perth Stadium’s initial planning phase has included consultation with government agencies, planning bodies and local governments, as well as sports groups.
Formal consultation began in mid 2011, after the Premier’s announcement of the Burswood site location, and initially involved the sports and other primary users of the stadium.
These groups, along with VenuesWest, the body that manages Western Australia's major State-owned sporting facilities, the Entertainment Industry Alliance and EventsCorp, have provided important advice and information on the stadium’s design requirements to the Project Team and consulting architects Populous.
At the same time, the Department of Sport and Recreation and the Department of Treasury’s Strategic Project division (the lead government agencies for the Perth Stadium Project) have been working with many other departments and authorities, including Planning, Transport, Environment and Conservation, Indigenous Affairs, Regional Development and Lands, the Public Transport Authority, Main Roads WA, Tourism WA, Swan River Trust, Metropolitan Development Authority, Western Power and the Water Corporation.
Representatives of adjacent land users, the Town of Victoria Park and the Burswood Park Board are also involved in planning discussions, while other consultation has occurred with the City of Perth, FORM, Perth Convention Bureau, Burswood Park Golf Club, Tennis West and the South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council.
