Have Your Say on Blaxland Masterplan
The community’s vision and commentary on the Blaxland town centre has helped guide the development of the Masterplan through a number of major community consultation activities since 2016.
The key masterplan principles are: to maintain and enhance Blaxland’s convenience for shopping; improve it’s built character; provide town centre living; enhance community facilities; enable employment; recognise and enhance its bushland setting and connections to Darug and Gundungurra Country; and improve pedestrian connectivity, traffic flow and parking.
The development of the plan included specialist studies into traffic & parking, urban design and retail studies, and an architectural study which explored the potential for the relocation of community facilities into a new purpose-built centre with shop top housing.
The Draft Masterplan states: “Blaxland is a significant service centre for the locals and outlying towns and villages and provides a diversity of services and retail.
The rewards for growth and change could be significant, due to the town’s ability to accommodate a greater range of housing diversity, its proximity to public transport and its potential as an accessible centre.”
The Draft Blaxland Town Centre Masterplan is on Public Exhibition from Thursday 8 February until 22 March 2018. The draft plan and online submission form can be found online.
