Feeling safe and secure is a major part of moving to any part of Australia, which is why real estate in Bunbury could soon see a surge in popularity.
The City of Bunbury has received $50,000 funding from the state government's Community Crime Prevention Fund, which will be put to good use throughout the area.
Two major projects have been given the go ahead as a result of the grant, including the Bunbury Hotspot Solutions Illumination Program.
Lights will be installed throughout the region as a deterrent to antisocial behaviour, which will be supported by the Queens Garden CCTV Initiative.
Police minister Liza Harvey highlighted that a lot of effort was already being put into ensuring the safety of Bunbury residents, which would be made even more possible as a result of this funding.
"Your contribution, combined with the strong interagency and community group partnerships you promote, is an important factor in enhancing the safety of our communities," Ms Harvey said in a letter to City of Bunbury CEO Andrew Brien.
Each of the two projects has been considered with the safety of residents in mind, as well as helping create a stronger sense of community in the area.
