This masterplan was conceived as a flexible framework built up from community input, rather than the traditional ‘top down’ rigid masterplan. The project team, led by McGregor Coxall, identified six strategies that formed the basis for the framework: Access and movement, public domain, natural environment, culture, economic development, built form and aesthetics.
The team identified 12 precincts within the masterplan area for which short and long term priorities were presented, based on the place strategies developed during the process.
Space Studio were engaged to provide architectural and community engagement services.
