Bangalow Village Plan

Council is preparing a 10-15 year forward "place plan" for the Bangalow village. The Bangalow Village Plan aims to create action oriented strategies that provide a vision and way forward for Bangalow, aligned to the current and future needs of the community. The plan is intended to be an evolving, 'living' document that will be reviewed and updated at regular intervals to reflect the community's changing needs and priorities.

The place plans will be framed around the urban design components as shown in the diagram below.

The process leading up to Council's endorsement in December 2016 of a project plan for the preparation the Bangalow Village Plan started with with the "Bangalow Have Your Say" survey which was conducted in December 2015/January 2016 asking the community what it liked and disliked about Bangalow and ideas for improving the village.

The feedback from this survey was used in a Place Creation Workshop for Bangalow held on the 15th and 16th March 2016. Invited representatives from Bangalow community groups, Council staff and Councillors attended the two day workshop which explored aspirations for Bangalow and raised awareness of the concept of Placemaking and its role in helping to shape Bangalow. A copy of the workshop record can be accessed here.

A Bangalow Village Plan Guidance Group was formed, including community representatives, staff and Councillors, and this group will take responsibility for guiding the preparation and content of the plan. The group have been involved in a series of workshops over the past year considering the different urban design components of the Village Plan and identifying ideas and possible actions for shaping the future of precincts within Bangalow. The information from these workshops is now being compiled and considered to help shape the draft Village Plan which is scheduled for exhibition mid- 2018.

Bangalow Village Plan - Movement and Parking Review

Movement (walking, cycling and vehicular) and parking came up as the most frequently mentioned topics in the December 2015 / January 2016 Bangalow Have your Say survey.

As part of the masterplanning process, Council is undertaking a review of movement and carparking in Bangalow. Specialist traffic and movement consultants MRCagney have been engaged to consider holistically the way people of all ages and abilities move around the village and provide strategies for incorporation into the Bangalow Village Plan for improving the street and pathway networks.

Before preparing any strategies or actions, Council and MRCagney held a number of community engagement events in May 2017 to firstly hear the views of local residents about what they consider are the key movement issues in Bangalow and their ideas for improving the street and pathway networks.

A summary of what the Bangalow community said in these consultation forums can be found here.
