About the project
The Indicative Land Release Program (ILRP) identifies Block 14 Section 99 Curtin (the Site) to be released for sale in the 2023-24 financial year with an identified use as a village style dementia care facility.
Before releasing the site, we are engaging with community, people with lived experience of dementia and with dementia care experts on the requirements for the development including design objectives and consideration of potential co-located services/uses.
How to have YourSay
We’re creating the Place Development Brief (the Brief) for the site that will include input from the community and Stakeholder Advisory Panel (the Panel). The Panel has been formed so that the development of dementia village can benefit from the collective wisdom, expertise, and support of specialist organisations and community groups. The Panel includes members from a range of community and special interest and peak industry groups.
In parallel with the Panel engagement, we are also reaching out to people with lived experience of dementia to participate in focus group discussions on the Project and the Brief.
If you would like to attend the focus group session, you can register below.

We will use your views to
Your input will be used to help prepare the Place Development Brief – a document that is provided as part of a sales pack to potential developers of the site. The tender process will require interested developers to respond to the Place Development Brief, among other criteria.
The Place Development Brief will outline community aspirations for the site and will outline the desired outcomes for the development of a best practice village-style model of care for people living with dementia. The Suburban Land Agency applies this place-led approach to key projects with the aim of creating great places where communities thrive.
We are looking at
The Site is zoned for Community Facilities, and is approximately 22,448m² in size. It is bound by Carruthers Street to the south, Storey Street to the north, and Jenkins Street to the west – please refer the map below. The site previously served as a primary school and subsequently as an Emergency Services Agency (ESA) office and childcare centre.
The project is currently in the pre-release community engagement phase. This is your opportunity to contribute to objectives for the new development, how the development interfaces with the surrounding Curtin community and possible consideration for complementary uses on the site.
The Government intends to sell the Site (Block 14 section 99 Curtin) through a competitive tender process to develop a facility for people living with dementia. The new facility will offer best practice, village-style care, and potentially community or commercial facilities for people with dementia, their families and visitors.
We are seeking community input into their connection with the site and aspirations to allow tenderers to respond to when preparing their tender design response.
