Wickham Master Plan

The draft Wickham Master Plan outlines the envisioned future character of the area and establishes various strategies that build upon the opportunities and challenges identified in order to guide future redevelopment, public domain and infrastructure plans and works.

 

Project Stages

The following stages of the project have already been completed:
 
  1. Identification of key opportunities and challenges to Wickham considering its changing role within the Newcastle City Centre.  These initial findings were collated within a   Discussion report (pdf). 
  2. Engagement with landowners to redefine the vision for Wickham and prioritise the issues to be addressed within the Wickham Master Plan.  The outcomes of the workshop are included in the    Wickham landowners workshop report (pdf). 
  3. Collaboration with technical experts and State agencies through a facilitated workshop to address potential conflicting issues and determine the best means of implementing identified opportunities.  The findings of this stage are included in the   Wickham technical workshop report (pdf)
  4. Council appointed the expertise of the AEC Group to prepare an   Economic analysis (pdf) for Wickham to inform the preparation of the draft Wickham Master Plan.
  5. Council also appointed Bitzios Consulting to prepare  Traffic and transport assessment (pdf) for Wickham to inform the preparation of the draft Wickham Master Plan.
  6. The   draft Wickham Master Plan (pdf) was exhibited for eight weeks, which included a community engagement program.
