Last year was a busy year for the People’s Junction project which began with the project team exploring different ideas and concepts for the future of Spit Junction.
We’re currently working on three planning proposals. These are planning documents which explain how Council is proposing to amend its Local Environmental Plan. Once they are completed they are submitted to the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure for approval to proceed and place on public exhibition.
The NSW Government is reviewing the State’s planning system. The Review began late last year and a Green Paper was prepared seeking feedback and comment from the public. A submission has been prepared on behalf of Mosman addressing a number of issues of particular relevance to this community.
Following a month of extensive community consultation a a report on the outcomes is now available.
The project team has worked all year to refine and draft a Masterplan for Spit Junction.
The ‘Planners in Pink’ from the project team last Saturday spoke to over 50 people at the Mosman Markets. The planners were impressed at the level of interest shown by passers-by and community members who made the effort to come down to the Peoples Junction stall to speak to them about the Masterplan and Civic Centre site concept plans.
Come down this Friday morning (7.30am – 9am) to the Seniors Centre and join the conversation on the preliminary plans for the People’s Junction with fellow business owners whilst enjoying some hot coffee and tea and local made pastries.
During the event we will discuss a range of interesting topics including:
• The development design options for the Mosman Civic Centre Sites;
• Exploring community uses on the Council owned sites;
• Development funding options;
• Identification of opportunity sites;
• Building height options;
• Street improvements; and
• Activating laneways
High streets are characterised by significant diversity and complexity, in terms of scale, geography, function and form. No two high streets are the same. As a result, the way in which they are affected by and respond to change is diverse and varied.
