METRONET’s ethos is to seek community feedback wherever possible.
Recognising the important role Bayswater Station has plays in the town centre, this is the most extensive community engagement ever undertaken for the redevelopment of a train station in Perth.
We thank the hundreds of community members who have taken the time to talk to us; there will continue to be opportunities to speak with the project team as part of ongoing activities to ensure a great outcome for the community.
Keeping the community informed is a key project priority. Community members can stay up to date in a number of ways:
Construction: Community Advisory Group – 2019/2020
For the construction phase, a new Community Advisory Group (CAG) was formed to act as a sounding board regarding the look and feel of the new station and public spaces, as well as impacts throughout the construction phase.
The CAG members were selected from the applicants to ensure representation of a range of demographics, geographics, interests, opinions and experience. The Community Advisory group members are:
Damien Hassan - Resident, Michael Cornwall - Resident, Clare Chamberlain - Resident, Julie Osyka - Resident, Georgia Kennedy - Resident, Ben Dellar - Resident, Jarrad Oakley - Resident, David Lee - Baysie Rollers, Tessa Hopkins - Bayswater Deserves Better, Kevin Kidd - Future Bayswater, Lynn Deering - Bayswater Historical Society, Greg Da Rui - Bayswater Village Retailers Trade Association, Alex Bray - City of Bayswater.
In July 2020, following the announcement of the Morley-Ellenbrook Line and Connection, two new members have been added to the CAG, Patrick Jordan and Jessica Ferguson.
The METRONET team will work with the CAG in the design development and construction phase of the project. Below are the minutes of the meetings to date.

The SBDC website contains downloadable guides and you can also connect with them through Facebook www.facebook.com/smallbusinesswa.
