Community sentiment in support of development
A community survey undertaken in the Town of Bassendean to gauge perceptions of future development of and around the town centre has revealed majority support for future development in the area, among respondents aware of redevelopment plans.
The support for general future development around the town centre was supported by 57.9% of total survey participants, with 31.9% reporting mixed feelings and 10.2% against it. The survey found that younger respondents and those who had been living in the area less than ten years were more likely to support future development.
Interestingly, despite the majority of respondents supporting future development, only 10.0% had been involved in community discussions and consultations to date.
