Our Vision

We need to keep change happening in Bassendean, moving forward by electing leaders in our community who are capable and will be responsible to ratepayers.

Whilst much has been achieved on Bassendean Council, we need to ensure that there is consistency in decision-making, financial management, and accountability to continue to deliver change.

We need to elect leaders who don't make promises they can’t keep, or stifle progress with their inability to make decisions and balance the budget.

Now with the change of faces on council, we as a community are presented with new challenges. It’s time to call on experienced leaders in the community to make sure that all the progress we have gained in recent years is not lost.

With four positions vacant, we need to elect councillors who share the same vision for change and who will be accountable to residents.

Our Goals

Our team share common goals for Council that include:

  • Focus on Accountability and affordable Rates,
  • Plan for Development that protects mixed-use green public space,
  • Provide a Child Health Clinic and playgroup centre,
  • Save Australia Day fireworks,
  • Keep Improving the town's services and amenities.
