Help ‘re-imagine’ Campbelltown CBD of the future
Locals are invited to help ‘re-imagine’ the future of Campbelltown CBD by providing feedback on Council’s bold vision for attracting employment and investment to our city, while creating more activated, connected and sustainable places.
The Re-imagining Campbelltown CBD draft strategy was developed in partnership with Deloitte to improve infrastructure, boost jobs growth and create a more liveable city – leveraging opportunities provided by the region’s growth over the next two decades.
The draft strategy has been placed on public exhibition for community input until Friday 27 April, and can be viewed at the Civic Centre on Queen Street, HJ Daley and Glenquarie Libraries, or can be downloaded from Council’s website by visiting campbelltown.nsw.gov.au/reimagining
Council will also hold a series of pop-up events, from Thursday 5 April, providing the community with an opportunity to find out more about the draft strategy.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the draft strategy had the potential to change our city and shape our future.
“Campbelltown City is home to more than 167,000 people, and our population is forecast to double over the next 20 years, with more than 275,000 people expected to live in Campbelltown by 2036,” he said.
“With this growth, comes opportunity – to generate greater investment, to create local jobs for local people, to transform Campbelltown into a dynamic, self-sustainable, liveable urban centre where people and business want to be.
“The Re-imagining Campbelltown CBD strategy focuses on providing new ways of connecting people and places, growing diverse local jobs, and delivering high quality lifestyle opportunities – a ‘Re-imagined Campbelltown’.
Cr Brticevic said Council wanted to deliver a strong economy, and to create a better future for the local community through greater job diversity, improved health and wellbeing, enhanced educational opportunities, and widely accessible sport, recreation, cultural and natural experiences.
“We are transforming Campbelltown CBD, and it’s vital our community share that journey by providing feedback on the vision we’ve developed. I’d encourage as many people as possible, from all backgrounds, to let us know what kind of city you want Campbelltown to be.”
