Have your say: Hurstville Central Plaza

07/07/2016

Georges River Council Administrator John Rayner today announced that Georges River Council is progressing well with its development of the Hurstville Central Plaza as part of the Hurstville City Centre Concept Master Plan.
“Hurstville Central Plaza is entering the community consultation phase, which is a great opportunity to have a say on plans for the future of this community space,” he said.
“It is also an ideal time for the community to share their vision and ideas of what they would like to see included as part of this long-term strategy for the site.
“I’d like to encourage residents and business owners to make comment to ensure Hurstville Central Plaza reflects the needs and wants of our community.”
Mr Rayner said a new urban plaza and activity hub in the heart of Hurstville will provide a new vibrant meeting place, enhance community wellbeing and celebrate Hurstville’s diverse cultural heritage.
“It will also improve street-level connectivity between Hurstville Central (train station), Hurstville Westfield and Hurstville Transport Interchange, and will encourage new opportunities for activation from adjacent properties.”
Hurstville Central Plaza will include Diment Way and the building (to be demolished) currently located at 296 Forest Road, Hurstville.
Mr Rayner said Council is currently consulting with landowners and business owners in the project vicinity, as well as local workers and residents.
“This revitalisation project will form part of an active, connected and culturally responsive urban plaza for the Hurstville City Centre.”
