Who we are:

We are a group of Leederville citizens, designers, architects and planners who are committed to seeing Leederville being the centre of design excellence Western Australia.

What we do:

We are focus on the built form and social infrastructure of our urban village.

We aim to define the Leederville style and the social infrastructure we need to make Leederville amazing! This is so we can avoid generic and poor quality developments that have characterised the typical output of the planning, architecture and development industries in Perth. Our village, and the people who live here, want better than average urban development and so we work hard to get it. Check out the LC DESIGN Resources.

Leederville Connect is a civil society organisation, where everything is done by community, for community.

We have a really broad idea of community; for us it’s about bringing together residents, businesses, property owners and visitors. Our bottom line is – “it’s about ‘we’, not me”. We support each other and the rest of the community to make Leederville amazing. We are proud to be one of the pioneering Town Teams that Western Australia is now famous for in place-based planning and community practices.

Our mandate is ‘the Commons’ – those places and things in our cities from which everybody benefits but traditionally nobody takes responsibility. The Commons are where we meet in the street, the culture we create between us, the vibe of our place, the blurred lines between public spaces and private places.

We provide the opportunity for people to shape Leederville and draw on its history of innovation and creativity to continue exploring, experimenting, and inventing the future of this place. As a vibrant, connected, inner-city urban village, Leederville offers us a platform to test ideas for the future of society; one that is sustainable, resilient, and thriving. Our community works with developers, local government, businesses, and other citizens to co-create this future. You can read about our Vision here.
