Consultant seeks feedback on community needs for Lawler Park

The City of Nedlands has appointed a consultant to determine the need for community facilities within Lawler Park, Floreat – and is calling for feedback.

A community-needs assessment is being undertaken by Community Perspectives Director Elizabeth Vlok.

City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said the consultant would liaise with interested community members and organisations to learn more about their community facility needs, both now and into the future.

“Lawler Park is dedicated to the memory of Raymond Lawrence Lawler, who was accidentally killed on 14 October 1954 while voluntarily performing earth works in the development of the reserve,” he said.   

“The City of Nedlands is committed to consultation on Lawler Park and keen to engage with all relevant stakeholders.

“Public consultation is a key feature of effective policy-making because it provides insights of extreme relevance.

“Lawler Park is a much-loved area with many uses and users and, by engaging a consultant, the City can gain a truly independent, objective analysis of what’s required in the area. 

“We hope people will take this opportunity to have their voice heard we invite feedback from all interested parties.”

Following the engagement process, the consultant will provide a report to the City on the findings.
