Frenchs Forest will benefit from a $1B investment in infrastructure with the new Northern Beaches Hospital and improved transport links.
We are using this investment as an opportunity to revitalise Frenchs Forest and create a new town centre for the community.
Rezoning of Frenchs Forest will be state-led. We are leading the rezoning process to implement a new planning framework.
We are planning a vibrant new town centre next to the Northern Beaches Hospital.
Our plan will help implement phase one of the Northern Beaches Hospital Precinct Structure Plan.
Community benefits of the new town centre include:
We are working with the community, Northern Beaches Council, School Infrastructure NSW, Transport for NSW and other agencies during the planning process.
We are conducting studies of the area. The studies include urban design, transport, open space, sustainability and heritage, amongst others.
These studies will be used to create an evidence base to inform the plan.
Once we have finished our investigations, we will release the draft plan to the community for their feedback.
Council will prepare a Development Contributions Plan to assist in funding for local infrastructure such as local roads and community infrastructure.
We are also investigating a Special Infrastructure Contribution for Frenchs Forest to help fund regional infrastructure such as cycleways.
