Community consultation on the vision for Wagga Wagga’s Health and Knowledge Precinct continues to provide valuable feedback towards the development of a final master plan.
The draft master plan for the precinct is currently on public exhibition with community drop-in sessions also running to give people every opportunity to give their views on the proposed plan and its various options.
The next drop-in session will be held at The Marketplace in Wagga on Saturday 17 August, between 9am and 5pm.
“This is another opportunity for the community to speak with Council’s strategic planners about this 30-year vision for the health precinct in Wagga,” Council’s Manager City Strategy Tristan Kell said.
“We’ve been given some excellent feedback at our drop-in sessions so far and addressed various concerns that property owners, residents and business owners have brought to us about the draft master plan.
“We want to stress this is a master plan, it’s a long-term vision to develop a structured plan for the area as opposed to ad-hoc development, there will be no acquisition of properties and there is certainly no cause for angst among the community.”
The Health and Knowledge Precinct Master Plan is being developed around the two major hospitals in Wagga and in consultation with medical specialists, many who have practices in the area.
“We’re talking to all stakeholders because we want to engage everyone in the community about this vision – residents, property owners, business operators and medical specialists – it’s important we collect people’s views from across the community,” Mr Kell said.
