Toowoomba Regional Council is currently reviewing the City Centre Master Plan (2010-2030). The aim of this review will be to celebrate progress that has been made in implementing priority projects over the last 10 years and to understand community priorities for the remaining 10 years of the plan. Through online events and engagement, residents from the region will be able to contribute their feedback and ideas for the future of the Toowoomba City Centre.
The ‘City Centre’ area encompasses a number of key locations for future growth and renewal. It Includes the city core which Is anchored by Queen's Park and Laurel Bank Park, The Hospital Precinct to the south and the Railway Precinct to the north. Key corridors Include East and West Creeks and the Railway line and historic station.
The City Centre Master Plan was developed in partnership with local businesses In order to drive and manage positive change. The plan identified unique urban characteristics of the city and aimed to capitalise on these assets.
These features include the strong street grid and network of interconnected laneways, heritage architecture and the Garden City Image. Subsequent strategies such as the Laneway Strategy, Public Art Strategy and Streets and Landscape Strategy further considered improvement works to support the master plan.
What have we achieved?
Since the implementation of the master plan, this area has undergone significant change, with over $800 million invested including TRC projects such as the City library, Good’s Shed, Outer circulating road, Ruthven Street and Kwong Sang Walk. The 2030 Master Plan is now at a half-way mark, and with 10 years to go, it’s the perfect time to take stock of achievements to date and look towards 2030.
