Movement and Transit

Movement and Transit

You can walk around in cities that are alive.

We want a place that is easy to walk around in and easy to find your way.

Leederville has trains, footpaths, busses, a freeway, main roads and laneways. We are not short of transport options, but currently they don’t connect very well.

We need multiple transport options available within 400m of anywhere in the centre.

To do this we need to:

  • Make the central area of Leederville mainly pedestrian but also easy to deliver stuff into during peak times.
  • Have some vehicles moving around after hours so that it still feels save.
  • Seamlessly link all the different types of transport.
  • Put the new multistorey carparks on the outside of the precinct, accessible from Leederville Parade.
  • Make the streets and laneways alive and vibrant.
  • Make the walking routes and laneways logical and with useable destinations.

“Cities with cars in them are dead” – Anna Kelderman

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.
