Planning for the Future of the Dunsborough Town Centre

The City of Busselton will soon be starting a new phase of planning for the Dunsborough Town Centre.

We are doing this because:

1. You asked us to.

The results of the City’s Community Survey 2017 told us that the Dunsborough Town Centre was seen as a priority for improvement.

2. The landscape has changed.

Since adopting the Dunsborough Town Centre Conceptual Plan in January 2014, a range of the improvements identified in this Plan have been implemented. This changing landscape is shown by ongoing streetscape works, the completion of rezoning to support mixed use development, and the outcomes of several recently proposed developments.

3. It’s time.

It always is. Creating a great place is a continuous process of re-invention.

Within this new phase, which we’ve called RE: DUNSBOROUGH, we are aiming to work across a range of different areas to achieve a vibrant and successful town centre that reflects the community’s vision for the future. This will include initiatives within the following areas:

Re-vision - Develop a collective vision for the future

Re-design - Review our town planning directions

Re-connect - Continue to improve our streetscapes and movement networks

Re-sprout - Support business development and growth

Re-create - Support public arts and events


As a starting point, we need your help to determine the kind of future to work towards. Please take a look at the Re-Vision tab below and lend us your thoughts and ideas – it’s your town, after all.


We’re also gearing up to prepare an Activity Centre Plan and Urban Design Local Planning Policy. Please take a look at the Re-Design tab below and add your examples, photos and comments about the type of building and streetscape design you would like to see.

Please consider watching the videos to the right hand side for further information.

Alternatively, you can email city@busselton.wa.gov.au (please quote SPAD002 to help us get your comments to the right place). These forums will be open until 18 June 2018.
