Big ideas needed for Reimagining Campbelltown City Centre

Published on 05 September 2019

Now is the time for residents to help shape the attractions, iconic places, jobs and infrastructure that will define the future Campbelltown.

Community consultation has started on Phase 2 of the Reimagining Campbelltown City Centres (RCCC) project which will create a blueprint for the city centres of Campbelltown, Macarthur and Leumeah over the coming decades.

Council wants to hear the community’s ideas for large-scale projects and experiences that will enhance the region by attracting investment and tourism to help establish a sustainable, resilient and prosperous Campbelltown in the heart of the Western Parkland City.

 “We want to hear the bold new ideas for future landmarks and attractions that will place Campbelltown on the map. No idea is too big,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“Reimagining Campbelltown will shape our city centre over the coming decades, ensuring we prosperously grow the city while protecting our environment and heritage,” Cr Brticevic said.

“This is an ambitious project that will support our future and proactively capitalise on the opportunities for growth in Western Sydney,” he said.

The RCCC vision identifies Campbelltown as a place of economic opportunity and connectivity that maintains its links to the unique bushland and cultural heritage of the area.

This masterplan will harness the benefits of the growth that Campbelltown will experience, ensuring that we are proactively planning for a city that can support the best possible lives of our residents, business owners, workers and students.

The enhancement of green spaces and waterways through the city centre will be identified as part of the master planning process, ensuring Campbelltown’s status as a green city remains at the forefront of planning decisions.

In an online survey, people are asked the five things they love about the city, the five things they would change and their big ideas to help develop the masterplan for the city centre.

The survey is open now and a community collaboration workshop will be held on the morning of Saturday 14 September. Anyone interested in attending can register as part of the online survey.
