Growing Spencer Park (www.communities.wa.gov.au/spencerpark) is a project led by the Department of Communities (Communities) in partnership with the City of Albany and the Great Southern Development Commission.

The project aims to improve Spencer Park’s liveability and connectivity while planning for a mix of modern housing for people who want to call Spencer Park home. It is one of eight urban renewal projects being undertaken by Communities across Western Australia.

With its partners, Communities is working to prepare a local development plan (the Plan) to guide future improvements and development in the precinct surrounding the Spencer Park Shopping Centre which includes Spencer Park Primary School, Bellingham Street and part of Hillman Street.

The Plan for Spencer Park will provide a framework for how the precinct area can be developed. It will show the types of buildings that can be built, streetscapes, design elements, open space and the linkages within the precinct and to surrounding areas.

Finalising the Plan is an essential first step to guide development and investment to grow Spencer Park over time. As this occurs, Communities and the City of Albany will continue to support community development initiatives and other improvements to assist Spencer Park’s ongoing revitalisation. 

Engaging with the Spencer Park community

From October 2018, Communities is engaging with Spencer Park residents, businesses, service providers and other stakeholders to seek input on the Plan. Independent engagement firm ConsultWG is conducting the community consultation, which will be held over three phases.

Phase 1 - Values, Priorities and Vision: October - November 2018

Phase 2 - Design concepts, feedback: February - March 2019

Phase 3 - Plan to be submitted: May 2019
