Community Bush Garden - Scarborough

Closed for comment 20 August 2019

Thank you for your feedback, consultation has concluded but updates will be available on this page as the project progresses.

The City of Stirling would like to hear your thoughts about developing a community-led bush garden on an area of underused land in Scarborough.

What is a community bush garden?

Community bush gardens are places where people come together to establish a native garden, to learn new skills and make new friends. The bush garden would be designed, run and used by the community and supported by the City of Stirling and Water Corporation.

The proposed site

The area of land is owned by the Water Corporation and often used as a walking thoroughfare. The site is primarily used as a sewage distribution station and this function would continue with the development of a bush garden.

Will the Scarborough Community Bush Garden definitely go ahead?

No, the community garden at the proposed site will be approved by Council and the Water Corporation only if community consultation shows sufficient support for the garden and all partners reach the necessary agreements.

To have your say please complete the submission form below by 19 August 2019.

Come along to a meet and greet information session at the proposed garden site:

Date: Saturday 10 August 2019

Time: 10am -11.30am

Location: 112 Brighton Road, Scarborough

  • Scarborough community bush garden moves one step closer

    The City of Stirling has closed its consultation for the proposed community Bush Garden on 112 Brighton Road in Scarborough and immediate review of feedback indicates strong community interest in the project.

    Residents who live nearby to the proposed site, as well as Stirling residents at large, were encouraged to have their say by taking a short survey on the Your Say Stirling platform, with the City receiving a large number of submissions and comments.

    Representatives from the City of Stirling and Water Corporation conducted an on-site pop-up in August and spoke with the local community about the proposed garden and the community’s vision for the space.

    The site, owned by Water Corporation, was suggested by a volunteer run Community Garden Group as a preferred location as it was deemed underused and conducive to a garden of this nature.

    Stirling representatives are currently analysing and consolidating the outcomes of the comments received and will provide further information soon as part of the continued consultation process.

    If approved by the Water Corporation and Stirling Council to progress, the bush garden will be designed, used and managed by the local community.

    If you would like to get involved with the project please contact City of Stirling Parks and Sustainability on (08) 9205 8555 or alternatively email sustainability@stirling.wa.gov.au.
