Planning crystallises into action at Wollongong


Wollongong’s position as the capital of the Illawarra Region will be substantially strengthened by its new Action Plan for the CBD. The plan lays out future priorities and includes costs, timelines and responsibilities. It pulls together over 60 projects, including business retention, investment attraction, streetscape and public space upgrades, a focus on building quality and traffic improvements.  The plan has the buy-in from major stakeholders, such as business owners, property developers and the local community.

The catalyst of the Action Plan was a series of strategic sessions in late 2010 run by Kobus Mentz, Wayne Bredemeijer, and the rest of the Urbanismplus team, along with Mike Cullen of Urbacity.
