Community consultation

 We will be carrying out consultation with the community early in 2019 to include everyone’s views about the Lindfield Village Hub.

What's on now

Information drop-in sessions

The next  community drop in session at Lindfield Library will be held on Thursday 11 July from 3pm - 5pm.

Retail in Lindfield

Lindfield Village Hub will offer local people an exciting opportunity to shop, eat and socialise. To make sure we get it right we invite you to share your views about retail in the Hub. Get involved by giving your thoughts in the online discussion or complete the survey.

Have a look at our Our Say site and then share your thoughts in our discussion forum.

Help us design a new library in Lindfield

A key feature of the Lindfield Village Hub is a new library.

Libraries are changing. Libraries are now interactive places reflecting our changing society: more transient, multicultural, growing older and digitally sophisticated. We’d like to know what your vision for the new library is.

Have a look at our Our Say site and then share your thoughts in our discussion forum.

Previous consultation

During the first half of November 2018 Council hosted seven workshops to discuss the Lindfield Village Hub with the community. At the workshop three development scenarios were presented to the community.

Thanks to everyone who participated. The discussions were very informative and will help us take the project forward.

The results from the workshops were presented to the Lindfield Village Hub Community Reference Committee in December 2018 and can be accessed in the report and attachments below:

View the scenarios

We are now inviting everyone in the community to view the scenarios presented at the workshops.

These are included in the information boards as presented at the workshops.

Note that ‘Scenario Options Information Panels’ are exactly as presented to the Community workshops in late 2018.  Please note that scenarios may be affected by market conditions.

If you have any enquiries please email us.

Why are we doing this?

We know that the Ku-ring-gai region is changing.  Our population will age at a higher rate than Greater Sydney and we will accommodate around 20,000 new residents by 2038 representing a forecast population growth of approximately 17% from 2016 figure. The Greater Sydney Commission North District Plan could further modify these forecasts.

The Lindfield Village Hub responds to:

  • The Greater Sydney Commission's North District Plan.
  • Ku-ring-gai Council's Community Strategic Plan which identifies nine priorities to manage our community profile.
  • Council's earlier proposals to develop the Woodford Lane car park site.

Our community facilities are ageing and will not keep up with future demand and changing needs.  We need flexible facilities that will adapt as we change.

Our community vision is a Ku-ring-gai that is a creative, healthy and liveable place where people
respect each other, conserve the 
magnificent environment and a society for the children and
grandchildren of the future. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

A place for the future

Council will operate new community facilities in the Lindfield Village Hub and we want to learn more about how you currently use libraries and community centres and how you will use these services in the future.  Future-proofing our services and amenities is a Council priority.
Here are some of the options for the Lindfield Village Hub community facilities.

More space for community organisations

We know that Ku-ring-gai has a high rate of community involvement and volunteering – how would your favourite community group use more space?

Small business networking

We know that Ku-ring-gai has a thriving small and medium size business sector – what services and technology does this sector need to grow?

Services for older people

We know that Ku-ring-gai's 2018 Community Strategic Plan forecasts that the elderly population will grow to 14.7%  by 2038 – how do we provide services for older people to encourage social inclusion?

Greater housing choice

We know that Ku-ring-gai has one of the highest percentages of detached dwellings – how do we provide appropriate housing choices for different housing needs?

Activities for young people

We know that Ku-ring-gai has a growing demographic of young people from 0-11 years and 12-17 years – how do we encourage them to be active and provide learning experiences for them?

Our objective is to design a place to play, shop, learn, eat, socialise and work.  The Lindfield Village Hub will set a new standard for quality design, new services and amenities for everyone to enjoy.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Did you know?

A hub is a collection of facilities clustered together on the same or adjoining sites. Hubs play an
important role in helping bring people together and creating a sense of local community identity.
