The master plan is the blueprint for future development and considers building heights, landscaping, transport and access and many other elements. The Subi East Master Plan was finalised in November 2020 following community consultation led by DevelopmentWA.
Subiaco Oval is open to the public outside of school hours. New turf has been laid, interim landscaping has been installed and the heritage gates have been restored.
Future use of Subiaco Oval will be shared between junior sports, general community use, Bob Hawke College and the West Australian Football Commission. The City is working with stakeholders to finalise a shared user agreement which will outline the use, management and maintenance of the oval.
The demolition of Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) is expected to take 18 months. Preliminary works began in August 2020 and external structural demolition is schedule to commence in early 2021.

that will be buried in the redevelopment PMH precinct, and opened in 109 years.

One of the agreed principles in the memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the City of Subiaco and the state government is investigating a potential co-shared multi-use recreation facility during the master planning phase. The investigation will consider funding, ownership and management of a suitable site. A site has been identified on the masterplan. Before making a decision, the City will consider the best outcomes for the community, in consultation with the community.
