The City of Canning has committed to creating a vibrant City Centre – we say Perth’s Southern CBD. We will achieve this through the implementation of a robust environmental, social and economic platform.
The revitalised City Centre with a rejuvenated streetscape for Cecil Avenue will anchor the area with a mixed-use and a pedestrian-friendly tree lined street.

The City is currently working on the following projects:
