You’re invited to complete the survey below and/or register for one of the Design Workshops to help shape our future.

So far, our discussions with you have found that:
  • Bassendean, Ashfield and Eden Hill are welcoming communities where people know each other and have a “country town” feel
  • The local area has a rich history that is reflected in the community, the environment and the built form
  • We have a beautiful natural environment with an abundance of vegetation, trees, green open space and connection to the Swan River
  • An accessible town centre in Bassendean (Old Perth Road) and easy access to the Perth CBD make Bassendean, Ashfield and Eden Hill attractive and convenient places to live.


The Town of Bassendean (the Town), supported by consultants Creating Communities and Collaborative Place Design, is excited to be engaging local community members and other stakeholders through the BassenDream Our Future project.

BassenDream Our Future is a community engagement project through which a vision will be developed for Ashfield, Bassendean and Eden Hill – a vision that reflects the history of each place and can preserve their character and spirit.

So far, approximately 350 community members have visited the Ideas Hub at 31 Old Perth Road, Bassendean and another 175 of you visited one of three mobile Ideas Hub sessions in Ashfield, Eden Hill and the Bassendean shopping centre. Many of you have also completed quick polls on the Your Say website.

This survey is the next step in the process: seeking feedback on how we can begin putting your ideas into action!

The survey is open until Friday 26 July 2019.
