Implementing our neighbourhood and town centre plans

Council is developing master plans such as the Mortdale Local Centre Master Plan and Beverly Hills Master Plan to explore opportunities to make our centres better places to live, work and visit. Activating and implementing these master plans will make our neighbourhoods and town centres better places to live, work and enjoy. More information can be found on the Your Say Georges River page on the Mortdale Local Centre Master Plan, the Georges River LSPS 2040 and the Night Time Economy Study.

Activating and greening our town centres

Additional greenery and innovative open spaces in centres near new housing and over new and existing transport corridors make a more liveable city and provide outdoor opportunities for residents and those working in our area. Increasing the placemaking potential of our centres can have benefits to our local economy. More information can be found in the Open Space, Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy 2019 – 2036 , Georges River 2050 Leading for Change, Hurstville Heart of the City Place Strategy, Georges River LSPS 2040; Local Strategic Planning Statement 2040 – Implementation Plan and the Kogarah Collaboration Area Place Strategy.

Regular cleansing of town centres and public toilets

Clean town centres and public toilets are valued by businesses and residents alike. They make the shopping / dining and business interactions pleasant and encourage people to visit. Maintaining the cleanliness of centres and public toilets is important to achieve this. More information can be found in the Economic Development Strategy

Growing local jobs and implementing our Night Time Economy Study

Council will drive economic growth and job creation opportunities to increase the attractiveness of places for business investment and expansion. There is enormous potential to grow our night time offering and enjoy all the social, economic and cultural benefits it has to offer. Diverse options lead to a more connected and resilient community, help create a more inclusive nightlife, improve safety and reduce crime. A great night time economy can transform a waning town centre and avert the decline of high street retail. More information can be found in the Economic Development Strategy, Night Time Economy Study, Kogarah Investment Attraction Strategy, Kogarah Collaboration Area Strategy and Commercial Centres Strategy Stage 1.


Supporting the Innovation Ecosystem

A culture of innovation lies at the heart of accommodating and implementing change, it promotes a growth mindset and responds to our ever-changing world. By injecting innovation into our everyday - our interactions and processes, as well as our local places and spaces - we will be a ‘leader for change’. More information can be found in the Innovation Strategy and the Smart Places Roadmap.
