The Port Kembla 2505 Revitalisation Plan sets a 25-year aspirational vision for the future of Port Kembla. The vision establishes a benchmark for policy makers, the development industry and land owners to guide investment and decision making. Informed by detailed urban design analysis, economic assessment and community opinion, the Plan identifies suburb-wide actions, with detail for five precincts to deliver change across the suburb. Wollongong City Council received funding under the Port Kembla Community Infrastructure Fund to devise the plan and undertake a community engagement process to inform the plan.
The Port Kembla 2505 Revitalisation Plan is underpinned by an Implementation Plan to guide the revitalisation of the suburb. The Implementation Plan lists priority actions targeted to benefit the local community – residents, workers and businesses – and will act as a tool to deliver a coordinated approach to delivering revitalisation. The Port Kembla 2505 Revitalisation Plan was endorsed by Council on 28th May 2018 and project delivery is underway. Council looks forward to working with the community and private industry to continue the revitalisation of Port Kembla.
The Port Kembla – Final Engagement Report 10 May 2018 presents a summary of information gathered via community engagement during the public exhibition of the draft Port Kembla Revitalisation Plan and draft Implementation Plan.
