Help shape the Helensburgh Town Centre Plan

We are preparing the Helensburgh Town Centre Plan which will set a vision and action plan for the town centre.

During 2019 we have undertaken a community survey and a vision and refining workshop with community members.

Thank you to all those people who have provided their time and input to date.

We'll be back to you before the end of the year to exhibit the draft Town Centre Plan and gain your views. Read the update below for more information.

The Helensburgh Town Centre Plan is for everyone who lives, works or visits Helensburgh.

    Helensburgh’s families will soon have a new playground to explore with work to start in spring on an updated playground in Charles Harper Park. Shade structures have been incorporated into the design, and work will start in September on the new district-level playground. Provided we get good weather, we expect the playground to be completed by November.

    Helensburgh’s Town Centre will benefit through a $1.6 million grant awarded to Council for its revitalisation. Our successful application to the NSW Government included current and future projects for the town centre. These projects include upgrades and resurfacing of car parks, streetscape upgrades and improvements to make the main street experience more pedestrian-friendly. Council will contribute $1.36 million from its capital works budget for the projects, and Helensburgh’s Metropolitan Coal (Peabody) will provide a further $180,000. All up, more than $3 million dollars will be spent on projects in Helensburgh

    You might see Council staff or contractors undertaking early investigations of underground services or doing surveys. This is all part of preparing concept designs for the main street, which we will bring back to you for feedback.

    Work is underway to understand options and costings for a new library
