A master plan for everyone
Wednesday 29 August 2012
The master plan has been revealed, which aims to extend the experience beyond your seat.
Late last week the Premier revealed the master plan that has been developed for the Burswood Peninsula sports and entertainment precinct. The master plan provides the planning framework for a sports precinct on Burswood Peninsula, in the context of the wider metropolitan Perth area. The approach to the master plan has been to extend the experience beyond your seat with:
- Spaces around the stadium for a “kick about” before the game.
- The stadium plaza to be an active place before and after the game where fans can meet friends and take advantage of a range of food and beverage options.
- Spaces around the lakes that will be great for pre-match picnics and barbeques. On non-game days, these spaces will bring families to the peninsula with a boardwalk, lakes and spaces for the whole family to relax.
The new Perth Stadium will deliver a multi-purpose venue hosting Australian rules football and major international rugby, cricket and football (soccer) matches, including cultural events and concerts.
To ensure we’re designing a stadium that caters for the fans first, the master planning process has included input from the various sporting bodies that will be using the stadium. These include Australian rules football, rugby and rugby league, cricket, and football (soccer). We have also benchmarked the master plan against other world class sporting venues, including the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct, and Sydney Olympic Park.
The master planning has also been very mindful of the impact that major sporting events in the new Perth Stadium could have on local residents. The location of the stadium on the northern portion of the golf course provides good separation from the nearest residential area, and the inclusion of a footbridge across the river landing near Gloucester Park, supported by a shuttle bus service, will minimise the impact on East Perth's residential streets. There will be further consultation with all stakeholders as the project moves to the design stage.
This will include community forums where the Project Team will explain the rationale for the master plan, and seek feedback on the proposals. For more information on these forums, please email us or call the new Perth Stadium Telephone Information Line on 1300 433 306.
