Subiaco East Redevelopment Project
The Subi East project is the redevelopment of the area that includes Subiaco Oval, Kitchener Park, Mueller Park, the former Princess Margaret Hospital site and West Leederville train station. DevelopmentWA is the State Government agency leading the project.
The City of Subiaco is working closely with DevelopmentWA and other stakeholders to achieve the best outcomes for the Subiaco community. Key priorities for the city include maximising the amount of green open space, public access to Subiaco Oval, heritage interpretation and achieving developments of high-quality design.
Masterplan - open for comment
The Subi East draft master plan has been released for comment by DevelopmentWA. The master plan includes three key neighbourhoods: along the railway, around Subiaco Oval and the Princess Margaret Hospital area. Community engagement to date has informed the draft plan including input from the City through the Precinct Liaison Committee and technical working groups, input from the community reference group (made up of business owners, residents and representatives of community and special interest groups), Aboriginal Elders Group and feedback from the wider community.
Visit haveyoursay.developmentwa.com.au to see the draft master plan and learn more about its key features and development. You can provide comment on the plan until Thursday 10 September.
Bob Hawke College
Bob Hawke College is the State Government's new, public-intake secondary school constructed on Kitchener Park next to Subiaco Oval. The college opened in February 2020 for year 7 students. By 2025 the school is expected to cater for years 7 to 12. More information
Subiaco Oval is open! New turf has been laid, interim landscaping has been installed and the heritage gates have been restored. Under an interim management agreement, the oval is currently open for general community and recreation access anytime outside of school hours. Future use of Subiaco Oval will be shared between Bob Hawke College, the Western Australian Football Club and the City of Subiaco for juniors sports and general community use. The City is working with the relevant stakeholders to finalise a shared user agreement which will outline the use, management and maintenance of the oval.
Multi-use recreation facility
One of the agreed principles in the MOU between the City of Subiaco and the State Government is to investigate the possibility of a co-shared multi-use recreation facility during the master planning phase. The investigation will consider funding, ownership and management of a suitable site. Before making a decision, the city will consider the best outcomes for the community – in consultation with the community.
As a provision for this potential opportunity, the City has set aside funds in the 2019-20 budget to build six sports courts and an underground carpark as stage one of this project. Read more
Kitchener Common Masterplan
The Kitchener Common Masterplan is the City’s vision for the precinct and was adopted by council in March 2017 following consultation on the North Subiaco Structure Plan and community feedback on different scenarios for Subiaco Oval. The masterplan was updated in August 2017 to account for the State Government's proposal and will be a reference point as the city progresses its partnership with LandCorp and the MRA.

Memorandum of Understanding
The City of Subiaco and the State Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in February 2018, securing future public access to Subiaco Oval and addressing the master planning for the precinct. The MOU includes the city’s key priorities and outlines how master planning will address traffic, transport, access and parking arrangements, and heritage interpretation of the precinct.

Two-way Hay Street and Roberts Road
The City is advocating for the conversion of Hay Street and Roberts Road to two-way traffic and is liaising with City of Perth, Main Roads and other stakeholders on the proposal. Concept designs and traffic modelling have been completed. Funding for this project was not included in the State Government's business case for Subi East and the City is actively seeking state and federal funding opportunities. This is a priority project for the City.
Subiaco Cultural Space
The City of Subiaco is advocating for a cultural precinct that honours arts, culture, heritage and sport to be included as part of the masterplan. Located at the site of Western Australia’s historic home of football, the space would celebrate the long history and cultural contribution of football at the iconic Subiaco Oval. The City is investigating funding opportunities to support this project.
Throughout the project, there will be opportunities for community members to provide input and feedback. LandCorp has conducted initial consultation with residents, businesses and community groups through surveys, pop-up information sessions and an online engagement platform.
