Activate Gordon

Gordon Cultural Hub

The Gordon Cultural and Civic Hub project was originally deferred in February 2016 due to the uncertainty surrounding Council amalgamations. However, continued interest from the development sector in Gordon, particularly the retail market, has prompted council to reconsider its position and on 22 November 2016 Council resolved to recommence the master plan process for a cultural/civic hub in Gordon. 

Council is taking a considered strategic approach to the planning of Council owned land within the Gordon Local Centre and will maximise the opportunity to work collaboratively with major new landowners  to play a role as catalyst for the revitalisation and activation of Gordon Local Centre. This would include wider benefits for the community in terms of significant public domain works, community facilities and civic space provision and vastly improved pedestrian connectivity. 

Ku-ring-gai’s local centres include Gordon, Turramurra, St Ives, Pymble, Lindfield and Roseville; revitalisation of these centres has been identified as a long-term goal in the Council’s Community Strategic Plan. It’s also included in the Delivery Program 2013-2017 which sets out the Council’s budgets and actions for each financial year for the next four years.
