The Melville City Centre is one of the largest centres south of the Swan River, in the Perth Metropolitan area, and is the key Activity Centre in the City of Melville.
A new planning framework for the area, the Melville City Centre Structure Plan was developed, which provides for the Activity Centre’s transition over time from a shopping complex to a sophisticated mixed use city centre.
Apparatus was engaged to review the City of Melville’s public art processes and prepare the Melville City Centre Public Art Strategy, a public art strategy created specifically for the activity centre. The review report involved an audit of the City of Melville’s Public Art Policy and processes and provide recommendations to the administration about future improvements.
Through the Melville City Centre Public Art Strategy, the local government authority is ensured a coordinated approach to public art in the precinct, which will improve the amenity of the city centre and maximise public art relevance to site, value for money and community benefit.
The consultancy included analysing the Melville Community Planning Scheme, the Activity Centre Structure Plan and other planning documents, engaging stakeholders relevant to the activity centre.
