TOWN PLANS NEED YOUR INPUT

upgrade Revitalising

Hawkesbury Council is looking for residents’ input into plans to upgrade Revitalising Our Town Centres of Richmond, South Windsor and Windsor.

The Draft Master Plan and Public Domain Plan, Liveability Project, Revitalising Our Town Centres of Richmond, South Windsor and Windsor is now available for view and comment at Council’s community engagement website www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au and at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor.

Community members can also access an interactive document and complete a Liveability community survey at www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au

Hard copies of the survey are also available at Council’s Administration Building, Hawkesbury Central Library and Richmond Branch Library or by calling Council’s Customer Service on 4560 4444.

The survey is asking community members for their thoughts and comments on the following town centre vision statements:

• Windsor – River heritage, civic boulevards, and vibrant people places
• South Windsor – An updated contemporary town centre
• Richmond – An activated cultural destination.

As part of the survey, community members also have the chance to prioritise key projects for Windsor such as a shared pedestrian zone in Windsor Mall, park and river connections, outdoor dining upgrades or extending the Library and Gallery courtyard.

For Richmond, community members have the chance to prioritise key projects such as a green tree boulevarde, new seating and street furniture, lighting, more opportunities for outdoor dining and activation of Richmond Park – such as new seating and pedestrian connectivity.

South Windsor options for community members to prioritise include a George Street green boulevarde with street trees linking South Windsor from McLeod Park to the Station, new seating, Bereewan Park upgrades – more greenery and tree canopy, formal path network, activate the park with play equipment or courts.

The project is supported by the Western Parkland City Liveability Program and funded by all three levels of government via the Western Sydney City Deal.

Closing date for comments is Monday, August 31.
