Hornsby Shire Council resolved on 8 November to adopt its Hornsby Town Centre Masterplan, sealing Council’s commitment to long-term future housing provision while protecting the character of the Bushland Shire. The Masterplan provides opportunities for over 4,900 new dwellings in slender residential towers, varying in height up to 36 storeys and clustered around the train station and mall.
Also facilitating up to 4,500 new jobs in the precinct, the plan encourages revitalisation of the Town Centre with new open spaces reflective of the Shire’s bushland identity, a new multi-purpose community facility, pedestrian and cycling networks and enhanced public transport access.
In response to feedback and submissions from the public, the Masterplan was adopted with several amendments that address feasibility and amenity concerns.
“I’m immensely proud of our Council to have finalised this Masterplan to meet our housing targets with design excellence and sustainability,” said Hornsby Shire Mayor Philip Ruddock.
