The City has prepared the Karratha Revitalisation Strategy to provide an overarching framework for the future development of the established suburbs of Millars Well, Pegs Creek and Bulgarra. The study area is depicted below:
The Strategy proposes enhanced streetscapes and public amenity, a greater diversity in housing options and improved transport networks.
Key Objectives of the KRS are to:
- provide the opportunity to develop additional dwellings of sufficient diversity to meet future housing demand. This housing will need to reflect the local climate and contribute to enhanced liveability.
- provide a better connected movement network that reduces travel distances and improves safety for residents irrespective of how they travel.
- develop a hierarchy of parks and connected open spaces with high quality facilities that are within reasonable, safe and pleasant walking distance of all dwellings.
- enhance the local character and amenity of streetscapes and swales to improve liveability and community pride.
