During the initial response, referred to by all levels of government as Phase 1, the City announced a three-step Mandurah Response Plan which focused on the role the City, our partners and community could play to help each other and stop the spread of COVID-19.

At a Special Council Meeting on 12 May, Council endorsed Restart Mandurah which focuses on reigniting Mandurah’s economy during Phase 2 commencing Monday 18 May 2020. Restart Mandurah has three key initiatives to support the community via rate and fee savings, creating $5 million COVID Fund, and supporting our businesses with local spending and increasing visitors.

View the Mayor’s address to the community or view his presentation to find out more.

Phase 3 – Transform Mandurah will develop our bold vision for the future.

The current six initiatives work together with the City’s operational response to protect and support our residents, rebuild our local economy and strengthen our existing strong social support networks.
