Aerial of Wollondilly Shire, NSW

Wollondilly Shire Council community members have been invited to look over concept designs for Stage 2 of the Wollondilly Cultural Precinct, which includes a new village green, library and Government Services Building. 

Several months ago,  Council asked for community feedback to understand how they would like to use the village green, library and Government Services Building and what these spaces could look like.

The valuable feedback received helped to shape the concept designs that have been developed, and Council is now inviting residents and businesses to provide further feedback they may have on the designs, which aim to bring the Picton Town Centre to life.

The concept designs are a high-level representation of proposed works, buildings and spaces for the area. It indicates the location, size and scale; relationship between buildings and spaces, and the general ‘look and feel’ of the area.

Wollondilly Shire Council Mayor, Matt Gould, said he looks forward to continuing the conversation with the community to ensure Council is creating a public space that will support a diverse range of community, cultural and civic activities.

“We’ve made great progress with Stage 1, with the newly refurbished Shire Hall already in use, the construction of the Children’s Services Building nearing completion, and the tender awarded for the Performing Arts Centre.

“This next stage will provide beautiful spaces where people can gather, and will strengthen the role of the Precinct as the community, civic, cultural and economic heart of Wollondilly.”

Mayor Gould said the design pays homage to the past as well as bringing the community into the 21st century, with the inclusion of modern, sustainable features.

“I’m very pleased that the concepts clearly respond to what we’ve heard from the community so far, with the architects creating designs that respect Picton’s heritage.

“Importantly the concepts appear to strike the right balance, envisioning a new Government Services Building that’s as small as possible in stature, but maximises internal spaces so our staff can effectively serve our growing community, for community uses, as well as office rental to generate funding to pay for the building.”

Mayor Gould said the project is critical to setting Wollondilly up for the future and that Council looks forward to hearing what the community has to say on the concept designs.

The designs are now ready to be viewed on Your Say.
