The purpose of the Wanju District Structure Plan is to set out the key planning principles that will help establish a new urban development for the Greater Bunbury region.
Wanju is set on 1210 hectares to the east of the Eaton townsite within the Shire of Dardanup
The name ‘Wanju’ means ‘welcome’ in the local Noongar language, and was chosen by the Shire of Dardanup following a public naming competition.
Wanju will offer a range of multi-storey housing, an emphasis on a mix of uses, and opportunities to walk, cycle and use public transport not previously seen in regional Western Australia.
The Collie River and Millars Creek foreshores will be enhanced to act as important ecological, recreational and surface water management corridors.
The Greater Bunbury Region Scheme and the Shire of Dardanup’s Local Planning Schemes will be updated to reflect the new Wanju District Structure Plan.
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.
