About the Project

Council has begun the process to prepare a Draft Urban Design Strategy for Mascot Local Centre. The Local Centre, which is located along Botany Road, has been identified as important to the future of the Central Subregion of Sydney and Council recognises that revitalising the Local Centre is a priority.

Council have appointed Conybeare Morrison to prepare the Strategy. The Project is funded by the Botany Bay City Council. 

About the Urban Design Strategy

The Urban Design Strategy aims to support: 

  • Good urban design;
  • The character of the Local Centre; and
  • The public domain.

This is so the Centre continues to be a place the community wants to live, work, play and shop.
