Master planning results
You may recall we mentioned that a review of the master plan was underway for our oldest estate, AFME at Bull Creek.
Following information sessions, meetings and feedback from residents, Division Council, executive and management teams, Plus Architecture and Urbis have developed a master plan for the future.
Over 150 people attended the two sessions in early December to hear about the reviewed plan and we are pleased to say that the outcome has been extremely positive with a focus on three big ideas.
- Ease of movement
- Building community
- Landscape and views
Residents feedback was, “We truly feel that Will and the team listened to everything we said and incorporated it into the plan”, and “I’m excited about it – I can wait for it to happen!”
The plan includes landscaped courtyards that define new anchors for communal activity at the east and west of the estate and community spaces within dedicated buildings.
New ‘boulevards’ have been created to connect with the heart of the estate and the memorial area. A realignment of the main entrance will enable a new memorial square to be created – providing a place of memory, that will connect with the community via a day centre and café.
The Master Plan will guide development on the estate over the next 10 years and at this stage there has been no decision made on implementation or timing.
