As you may know Pittwater Council is moving towards Place Planning our community spaces. Place planning is creating places where the community want to live, connect and work.

Through place planning Council will aim to:

  • Create places designed for people
  • Attract the right uses to the right places
  • Provide a focal point for employment and new forms of residential development
  • Improve connectivity in and around the centre, especially for pedestrians
  • Recognise the importance of streets as community spaces and destinations.
  • The development of this plan is taking place over the next 18 months with Urban Talks, Interactive Workshops and Enliven events being held during this time.

Whilst the Mona Vale Place Plan is the first, it will not be the last as Council will apply this process across all villages and community spaces in the future.
