Kogarah North Precinct Public Domain Plan

24/05/2018

Georges River Council has engaged urban design consultants Atlas Urban to prepare a Kogarah North Precinct Public Domain Plan.

Mayor of Georges River Council, Councillor Kevin Greene, said the development of this plan will help guide the transformation of the Kogarah North Precinct into a vibrant and welcoming area with new footpaths, street trees, street furniture, parks and public art.

“The Greater Sydney Commission’s South District Plan identified Kogarah, along with Sutherland, Hurstville and Bankstown, as having the largest concentrations of knowledge-intensive jobs in the South District,” Councillor Greene said.

“We expect that once complete, the plan will go a long way to building on the strengths of Kogarah North, and help Council deliver quality development for the community, which focuses on improved liveability, productivity and sustainability.”

“The Public Domain Plan will provide streetscape design guidelines for public domain improvements for private development, as well as identify associated costings for the Section 94 Contributions Plan,” he added.

Councillor Greene explained that this sort of high-level planning requires strong understanding and careful consideration of what the community’s needs are, which is why feedback is being sought from the public.

“I encourage the community to have your say and provide your ideas in relation to the Public Domain Analysis of the Kogarah North Precinct,” he said.
