Horsham North Local Area Plan

Council has prepared a Draft Issues and Opportunities Paper for Horsham North that identifies some of the issues and opportunities in terms of parks, public spaces, streetscapes, and pedestrian/cyclist connectivity in Horsham North.

This work isn’t new… The project will pick up from previous work and community engagement that informed the Horsham North Urban Design Framework (2013) and the Rail Corridor Masterplan (2016).

Both of those “strategies” or “plans” identified a number of issues and opportunities in addressing public realm and accessibility issues. Since the creation of those documents, Council has undertaken a number of projects and is in the process of undertaking current projects, including planning work for the conversion of the railway corridor for public use and also the upcoming Silo Art project.

Council asked for feedback on the Horsham North Issues and Opportunities paper (submissions closed Tuesday 29 April). This feedback and the outcomes from the community workshop will help create the Local Area Plan.
