Hornsby Town Centre Masterplan ADOPTED

At its meeting on 8 November 2023, Council resolved to adopt the Hornsby Town Centre Masterplan. This is the culmination of five years of extensive work undertaken by Council staff to formulate an ambitious vision to transform Hornsby Shire's major town centre.

The Masterplan promote a redefinition of the Town Centre skyline with opportunities for 4,900 new dwellings in slender residential towers, varying in height up to 36 storeys and clustered around the train station and mall and 4,500 new jobs.

Council now invites owner-initiated planning proposals to implement the Masterplan, which would be the subject of separate reports to Council and submission to the Department of Planning and Environment. Any such planning proposals would be publicly exhibited.

To assist the implementation of the Masterplan, Council is preparing additional supporting documentation including a Infrastructure Funding Strategy (including Development Contributions Plan), Public Domain Guidelines, Development Controls, Affordable Housing Scheme and Implementation Plan.
