Help shape tomorrow's Tighes Hill
Character is a critical element of our neighbourhoods that needs to be understood and considered while planning for change in the City of Newcastle. All areas have character and we want to understand what aspects of your local area you value and want to retain while our city continues to evolve and change.
Many things create character including the buildings, shops, parks and the residents! Council needs to hear what is most important to you about the combination of buildings in Tighes Hill and how they are used. This can be described by qualities such as land uses, for example the Maitland Road shops or Tighes Hill TAFE, architectural styles, building densities, height, types, materials, setbacks and landscaping.
The character of Tighes Hill is constantly changing, with some elements of the history being retained for longer than others. Have a look into the past and think about how it has created the Tighes Hill we see today by viewing the story map:
This study is a two-stage project, the Tighes Hill pilot being the first. As participants in the pilot you will help us review and refine the study before we replicate it across the council area.
A third Online wokshop is taking place on 15 September. The intention of this workshop is to finalise the Local Character Statement developed over our previous two workshops.
Please register your details below if you would like to attend the wokshop, and you will be emailed the details on how to connect to the online event.
You can still make further submissions about the Tighes Hill Local Character Study to the project team at email@example.com
