In 2016 ‘A City for People’, our vision for Wollongong City Centre was endorsed. A key recommendation was to test planning policy to ensure it aligned with delivering the City Centre vision – a City Centre that is people-orientated, sustainable and liveable.

We undertook detailed urban design, economic and planning analysis to test the planning controls. This work came together in the draft Wollongong City Centre Urban Design Framework. We took this framework to the community for feedback.

In September 2020, Council adopted the Wollongong City Centre Urban Design Framework (UDF).

In September 2020, Council adopted the Wollongong City Centre Urban Design Framework (UDF).

The UDF was used to prepare the draft Wollongong City Centre Planning Strategy and detailed policy recommendations.

The draft Wollongong City Centre Planning Strategy, Wollongong Local Environmental Plan 2009 (LEP) and Development Control Plan (or DCP) were reported to Council for consideration at the meeting on Monday 7 December 2020.

Councillors deferred the project and requested additional studies be completed before we move to the next stage.

While we gather this information we will check in to let you know how this work is progressing.
