Have your say on the future of Baulkham Hills Town Centre

Have your say on the Baulkham Hills Town Centre draft master plan.

A spokesman for The Hills Council said the plan, which goes on exhibition on Tuesday (August 19), aims to promote housing and jobs and includes a public domain plan to guide improvements to the public spaces.

These include new street pavement, bus shelters and street furniture.

Mayor Michelle Byrne said the rejuvenation of Baulkham Hills Town Centre was something that excited her.

“The draft plans signal more residential development, more business development, improvements to public transport, better pedestrian and cycling links and improvements to the streetscape, to name a few,’’ Cr Byrne said.

“We’ve also identified some key investigation sites where we acknowledge there may be some barriers to redevelopment, but council is encouraging land owners to come to us with proposals and ideas on how we can take Baulkham Hills Town Centre to the next level.”

Cr Byrne said Baulkham Hills Town Centre was one of the three significant town centres in The Hills shire, along with Castle Hill and Rouse Hill.

“We know that it’s highly likely that Baulkham Hills will be further connected to Western Sydney through a future light rail network, and improvements to public transport,’’ she said.

‘‘We think it’s a fantastic place to accommodate residential and retail growth.”

The exhibition period closes on September 19.
