The Heart of Blacktown City Centre Project

Submissions closing on 30 May 2021, 11:59 PM


Blacktown’s city centre is undergoing rapid change, with a growing population and major projects that mark a new era for living, education and employment within the city centre.

Blacktown city centre is home to some of Sydney’s best multicultural celebrations, hidden artistic activities, thriving enterprises and international cuisine. This ‘Heart of Blacktown’ project aims to share these activities with more of our community. The project will set a road map for activities, events and development, to enable us to create a city centre that responds to the needs and aspirations of the local community. While the city centre is full of places with potential, it’s the soul of Blacktown that will make it a city full of places to love - and we want you to help us shape this future vision

Our 'Heart of Blacktown City Centre’ project is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Places to Love program. We are working with the Department of Planning Industry and Environment to develop a Place Identity and Place framework that will express the spirit of Blacktown in both short-term activations and longer-term design recommendations, that make the city centre a great place to live, work and come together as a community.

We want to hear from you

We have two activities we'd love for you to complete, to help us ensure Blacktown is a place to love! Head to the link below to drop a ‘memory pin’ and a ‘great idea’ on the interactive map, and complete the community survey.  Alternatively, you can register to attend our online community workshop!

  1. Tell us your big idea by what you love about Blacktown city centre through our online community survey here or through our interactive social pinpoint map here

  2. Join us for the online community workshop on Tuesday 11 May 2021 from 6.00 pm till 7.30 pm via the Zoom platform. Register here.

Want to share your ideas with the rest of the community, and start a dialogue?

Head to the Blacktown City Library and pin a memory or idea to the Community vision board, which is currently on display in the foyer.  It only takes a minute and will contribute to the collage of memories, ideas and feedback that will help shape the future of our city.
