We have looked at our community facilities and other properties Council owns, and have developed the draft Community Infrastructure Plan. This document will give direction for the provision of community facilities in a sustainable manner that will meet current and future needs and provide many benefits to our community.

The draft document has a 10 year horizon, with some short term actions as well as longer term projects. Over 30 documents were consolidated from more than a decade’s research and thousands of community conversations have been drawn on to create this document. Click here to see the 30 documents.

 

 

 

Key elements of the draft document:

  1. Creation of 3 community hubs: providing updated and new facilities, which will see the delivery of Hunters Hill’s first library, contemporary community and cultural arts spaces as well as additional housing to provide quality over 55’s and/or smaller style accommodation for local people who wish to downsize.
  2. A focus on the two key sites Council owns in Gladesville: and how these can contribute to the overall masterplan outcomes to revitalise the Gladesville Commercial Centre
  3. Specialised facilities: such as The Priory that offer unique opportunities
  4. Leases and licences Council has in place to demonstrate community benefits
  5. A structured approach for the review of small parcels of land Council manages.

The benefits that this document aims to deliver:

• A Library for our community
• Fit for purpose facilities through adaptive reuse and creation of new facilities
• Optimise use of Council’s facilities
• A catalyst for the local economy in particular in Hunters Hill Village and Gladesville
• Match community needs with the provision and use of facilities
• Quality housing for people seeking to down size locally
• A sustainable model for the delivery and operation of new facilities and reduce Council’s reliance on rates revenue.

Outcomes
• Innovative services and assets that meet current and future community needs.
• Property being used as a means of getting services to users
• A sustainable built environment that accommodates a growing population.
• Places, spaces and support for the wellbeing of the community.
• Well-used community and civic facilities.

Goals
• Improved Community Service delivery.
• A place-based approach to deliver facilities, services, programs and initiatives.
• Quality cultural facilities/spaces including a new library, art spaces and live performance.
• Quality recreational spaces both internal and external.
• Quality open space.
• Appropriate facilities for organisational requirements integrating to other community facilities

We are seeking community feedback on the draft document in terms of the vision for the community hubs, opportunities and considerations identified and other ideas to enhance our area to ensure the current and future needs are met. The Community Infrastructure Plan will be on community exhibition until 2 November 2020.
