Have Your Say!

Many of you will have good ideas and a list of priorities regarding the use of City of Cockburn facilities.

And the public feedback period is now open. Please participate in this important consultation to ensure your needs and suggestions are heard.

Additionally please share this opportunity with others who might want to have input.

Help shape the future of facilities in Cockburn

By 2041, Cockburn's population will be around 40% larger than it is today. We're planning what community, cultural, and recreation facilities the City needs now and, in the future, and we want your input.

What we want to know

To understand our community's needs better, we want to hear your views on community, culture, and recreation facilities in Cockburn including:

  • Which facilities meet your needs?

  • Which facilities need improving?

  • What facilities are missing and why are they important?

We will consider your feedback alongside demographic analysis, provision guidelines, and other technical criteria as we draft our latest Community, Sport, and Recreation Facilities Plan.

What the plan covers

The plan covers major facilities (over $500,000) in Cockburn including:

  • Libraries

  • Arts and cultural facilities

  • Community centres and halls

  • Sporting facilities, reserves, and club rooms

  • Skate parks and pump tracks

  • Specialised community facilities (e.g. Men's Sheds, Seniors Centres, Youth Centres, Surf Life Saving)

It does not include transport networks, dog exercise areas, playgrounds at non-sporting reserves, state-owned services (e.g. schools, health care, Police, etc), or private businesses (e.g. cafes, restaurants, childcare centres, etc.). For more information read the Frequently Asked Questions.
