Council to review Springwood Town Centre Plan

By | March 9, 2015

Blue Mountains City Council is embarking on a masterplan to guide the future development of the Springwood Town Centre.

Master plans are an important component in setting a suitable planning framework for the look, feel, vitality, viability, sustainability and accessibility of towns and villages in the City.

The masterplan will involve a review and update of the Springwood Town Centre Master Plan, originally adopted in 1995. The aim of a masterplan is to guide the future development of Springwood, management of Council asset and facilities in the public domain, and inform major projects and initiatives.

Deputy Mayor, Cr Chris Van der Kley said, “Springwood is a vital district centre providing commercial and community services for the Lower Mountains.

Our focus will be to ensure the Springwood town centre remains a vibrant village centre with convenient local services, mixed uses and meeting places, now and into the future.”

At its last meeting of 24 February, the Council appointed a specialist consultancy service, McGregor Coxall, to review the Springwood Town Centre Masterplan.

“The Council is pleased to appoint McGregor Coxall, a highly reputable urban design and landscape planning service”, said the Deputy Mayor. “We are confident they will provide a strong team and a superior approach to the project, including community engagement.”

Opportunities for community engagement in the Springwood Town Centre masterplan will be promoted widely once the project plan and timeframe is established.
