Draft Hill 60 Landscape Master Plan

Draft Hill 60 Landscape Master Plan | Port Kembla Today and Yesterday | Scoop.it
Last year, Council undertook a review of the Hill 60 Conservation Management Plan. We consulted with the community and stakeholders about the future use and vision for the Hill 60 precinct. The outcome of that review was to create the draft Hill 60 Landscape Master Plan, which identifies a number of proposals related to the ongoing community use of the site. The proposals also better celebrate the Aboriginal cultural heritage of the area. We're inviting the community to provide feedback on the proposals outlined in the draft Hill 60 Landscape Master Plan until 25 August 2015. Council will consider all community feedback submitted during the exhibition, before finalising details of the Hill 60 Landscape Master Plan. Please read Council’s Privacy Notification before making a submission. Submissions can be made by completing the feedback form online, by email or in writing to Locked Bag 8821, WOLLONGONG NSW 2500.For more information phone (02) 4227 7111.
