The Bentley Regeneration project is an exciting project that will develop approximately 25 hectares of land owned and/or controlled by the Department of Housing and the City of Canning into a highly valued local neighbourhood centre.
The Department of Housing is pleased to work with the City of Canning to redevelop this important area, approximately 8kms from the CBD, which will continue to attract those wanting to be close to education and employment opportunities.
It is expected that the regeneration will result in up to 1,500 new dwellings, some of which will be available as affordable housing.
The project will develop a tired area into a vibrant one, providing new amenities and services and offering a range of housing options.
The Bentley Regeneration project represents an extremely important opportunity to demonstrate how both state and local government will deliver strategic urban infill in accordance with Directions 2031 and Beyond and the State Affordable Housing Strategy.
As a first step towards regeneration, the Department undertook substantial renovation of the towers between 2005 and 2010 which included external and internal renovation, modifying the social mix and transitioning the towers to an over 45s complex.
Site preparation works including the demolition of Department of Housing properties is well underway and will be completed later this year. The preparation of a new land use plan for the site is also well advanced with community and stakeholder consultation scheduled to take place over coming months.
Construction of new dwellings is expected to commence in 2015.
