MEDIA RELEASE

The Gladesville Town Centre is highly valued by the community and Council as a precinct of social and cultural significance.

On 1 July 2020, Council was advised by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment that they have determined not to make the plan proposed by the landowner under section 3.36(2)(b) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

This decision was based on advice from Transport for NSW which highlights the impact the proposal may have on the function of Victoria Road. This determination also considers Council’s work undertaken to date on the Gladesville Town Centre Master Plan, and provides the opportunity to incorporate the Gladesville Shopping Village (GSV) site into this work.

Council has been working with consultants, GMU, to prepare the Master Plan for Gladesville and looks forward to now including the GSV site as part of this project.

Our Local Strategic Planning Statement was adopted earlier in 2020, and shares a vision for a renewed and revitalised, mixed-use urban centre. It will be the primary centre and commercial hub for the wider area, providing a full range of retail services and entertainment to the community.

The redevelopment of the shopping centre with increased commercial space and residential apartments in well-designed buildings will be the catalyst for renewal, place-making and urban design outcomes throughout the broader Gladesville centre.

Supported by the recommendations of the study, Council will develop a Planning Proposal for the site in the coming months. This will follow a consultative process to be undertaken with the community and property owners.
