The Nyungar area now known as Subiaco, in Western Australia has a long and rich history with stories from the Early settlers and Benedictine monks, through the first and second world wars, as the state's home of Australian Rules Football for over 100 years, as the birthplace of many and as a vibrant, green group of inner-city suburbs. It has contributed so much to the fabric of Perth and is home to many important landmarks.

Subiaco has consistently led the way in modelling what a successful, higher density, inner-city commercial and residential area can be. It is and always has been such a special and proud place!

Now the State Government is planning to rezone nearly 50% of historic areas of Subiaco, Shenton Park and Daglish for massive high-density development. This is simply unjustified and will permanently destroy these historic neighbourhoods, their amenity and what attracts families and visitors here. Subiaco has already met its density targets, there is no need for this destructive plan so don’t let it happen! Help us Save Subi and protect this important and precious place for current and future generations. This is a fight for us all, because you can’t replace history. Once it’s gone, its gone.

What they’re Planning...

Simply put, this plan wipes out about half of the character neighbourhoods of Subiaco, Shenton Park and Daglish. Gone. So many homes will be negatively impacted on and the amenity and streetscape permanently destroyed  - and let's not even contemplate the disastrous consequences to traffic and parking on our narrow streets. Refer to the map and zoning table above to help clarify just what's being proposed - that's a whole lotta high-rise!
