Draft Camden Spaces and Places Strategy

The Camden LGA is undergoing rapid urban growth, which is resulting in changes to the community profile, urbanisation of once rural landscapes is placing pressures on existing social infrastructure. The draft Camden Spaces and Places Strategy aims to address these challenges and provide a strategic framework and action plan to support the significant role that Council plays in the provision of open space, play spaces and community facilities to meet the needs of current and future populations.

Some of the recommendations of the strategy include:

  • Identify gaps in the provision of open space, recreation spaces and community facilities;
  • Project the future demands and need for such facilities, considering the projected population growth;
  • Establish best practice benchmarks and agreed definition of terms;
  • Provide an action plan and priorities to meet the needs of the current and future population of the Camden LGA
  • Inform future capital works improvement plans; and
  • Inform and guide social infrastructure planning for future urban development in the Camden.
