Community News Continued...During October and November 2019 DevelopmentWA released a ‘Have Your Say’ community survey to find out what the community would like to see and value in the future Alkimos Central city centre. Feedback was received on a range of topics which has been summarised into six key themes which you can view here
This survey has provided a starting point for further conversations with the wider community and stakeholders and is assisting DevelopmentWA with our structure planning for Alkimos Central.
By completing the survey the community had a chance to win one of three gateway shopping vouchers. Congratulations to our three winners Megan Jones, Tim Ball (and wife Rachel) and Michelle Timm, pictured left with her Gateway Shopping Precinct voucher.
