Update on Mosman Civic Centre Needs Analyis

The Needs Analysis for Mosman’s Civic Centre has been completed. A report (EP/63) was presented to Council on 2 December discussing the Needs Analysis and the next steps in the process.

At that meeting Council resolved to place on public exhibition concepts for Mosman’s Civic Centre site that:

  • Provide improved facilities for the Mosman community, including new library, art gallery, community facilities, public domain improvements, administration offices and additional public car parking
  • Adhere to planning controls for building height and floor space ratio contained in Mosman Local Environmental Plan 2012
  • Are financially positive as a result of the redevelopment of some land within the site for private residential and retail use

Public exhibition of the Civic Centre proposal will likely occur in early 2015. The objective of this consultation is to ask the community – Do you support the idea of redeveloping the Civic Centre site for improved community facilities offset by private development on part of the site?

In accordance with the Council resolution, consultation will be undertaken over a minimun of 6 weeks and public meetings will be held during this time.
