Baulkham Hills Town Centre – Draft Master & Draft Public Domain Plans

Submissions Close 19 September 2014

The draft Master Plan promotes higher density forms of housing and a mixture of employment and retail uses within the Town Centre. It identifies key sites with design principles to promote buildings that contribute to a safe, active and vibrant street environment. It has been developed to set the framework for future development and infrastructure decisions.

The draft Public Domain Plan provides Council and developers involved in the revitalisation of the Baulkham Hills Town Centre with the information needed to plan and design for improvement of the public spaces. The Plan identifies consistent street furniture such as paving, seating, bins, banner and flag poles, bus shelters and landscaping which are to be used throughout the town centre and outlines the vision and design concepts the key public spaces.

The draft plan provides:

  • An analysis identifying the current and desired future character of the Baulkham Hills Town Centre;
  • A public domain design framework providing design direction for future development, including recommended design approaches, treatments and details; and
  • A proposed implementation plan for these recommendations.

Both plans will be further developed based on feedback from all stakeholders with the overall goal of creating a vibrant centre that caters for the needs of business, and is a place where individuals and families want to live, work and shop.

There will be two drop-in sessions at the Baulkham Hills Library between 5pm and 7pm on Monday 25 August 2014 and between 11am and 1pm on Saturday 6 September 2014.
