IDEAS FOR A NEW “SANCTUARY POINT VILLAGE CENTRE PLAN
Big things are happening for the Sanctuary Point Shopping Centre but the community does not appear to be as knowledgeable, engaged or excited as it should be.
Bruce & his wife live in Sanctuary Point having retired and moved from Sydney in 2013. As a planner, he has begun to take an interest in our community, particularly with regard to:
• a new District Library proposed on the corner of Paradise Beach Rd and Kerry Street (Councils Site A),
• a new amenities building being designed for Francis Ryan Reserve, and
• a new Strategic Master Plan for the Shopping Centre in preparation by the Revitalise Sanctuary Point Group This may all soon be a reality and sounds great. But, has all of this been thought through and planned as well as it can be? BTG Planning sheds some light on the issues surrounding these events and offers some suggestions to help make this a truly outstanding community to live in. WHERE.........
