Public invited to provide feedback on North Granville draft masterplan
Written by Darryn Capes-Davis on 2 November 2019
City of Parramatta Council is inviting local residents and businesses to have their say on upgrades to recreational and community spaces in North Granville.
The draft North Granville Community Facilities Masterplan, which is now on public exhibition, provides a long-term plan for developing social infrastructure, including open spaces and plazas, cycle paths, playing fields and other amenities.
“The purpose of this masterplan is to ensure the community facilities and spaces in North Granville meet the needs and expectations of both current and future residents of the area,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Bob Dwyer said.
“As our local population grows, open spaces and community facilities will become more valuable than ever, so it is crucial that we find out what the community wants and needs before developing these spaces and facilities.”
The preparation of the masterplan and delivery of the improvements outlined in the plan have been funded under the NSW Government’s $198 million Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP).
The draft masterplan identifies upgrades for the playground at Gray Street, FS Garside sports field, Onslow Street carpark, Alfred Street cycleway, and a dedicated dog park. It also includes new youth recreation facilities and a new multipurpose community building.
