As a specialised activity centre, Bentley-Curtin is home to regionally significant economic and institutional activities which support the diversification of the Western Australian economy.
The Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre is located approximately six kilometres south-east of central Perth and is one of five specialised activity centres identified in the Western Australian Planning Commission’s Perth and Peel @ 3.5 million suite of strategic planning documents.
Specialised activity centres are places that have dedicated functions focused on regionally significant economic or institutional activities. They present the opportunity for the development of additional specialised activities plus activities and land uses that complement and support the centre’s primary uses and provide amenities to people who utilise the centre.
The Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre is a significant employment centre. It is the location for State Government agencies, Curtin University, the CSIRO and many other commercial and civic agencies and organisations which have an essential role for the people of Perth and Western Australia.
The Bentley-Curtin Specialised Activity Centre Plan is a strategic framework that will inform further detailed planning and development. Key elements of the Plan include:
The Western Australian Planning Commission sought public comment on the Plan between December 2016 and February 2017. Analysis of submissions and revision to the document occurred and a final version was approved by the Western Australian Planning Commission and the Minister for Transport; Planning; Lands in 2018.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
