Brookvale Vision and Structure Plan

In March 2015 the Mayor asked Council to start planning the vision and masterplan for Brookvale. Following the initial visioning forum, we are now undertaking a planning study which will guide the future development of Brookvale. This will lead to a Brookvale Structure Plan.

  • Decision to prepare Brookvale Structure Plan

    almost 2 years ago

    Thank you to everyone who contributed to the online Brookvale Visioning Forum earlier this year. Your comments will be included in the preparation of the Structure Plan.

    Following the Mayors earlier request for a Brookvale vision, Council agreed to prepare a Structure Plan for Brookvale in August 2015.

    The NSW Government has identified Brookvale as part of the 'Brookvale - Dee Why Strategic Centre', one of only two Strategic Centres on the Northern Beaches, the other being at Frenchs Forest.

    We are already working on planning for the future of Dee Why and Frenchs Forest and have now prioritised planning for the future of Brookvale as part of a coordinated approach to managing these projects. These plans will then contribute to the Warringah Local Planning Strategy, which aims to address growth in Warringah for the next 20 years.

  • Background - Brookvale as an Employment Precinct

    over 2 years ago

    Brookvale was identified in the NSW Government’s Metropolitan Plan as part of the 'Brookvale-Dee Why Strategic Centre'.

    The Plan identifies Brookvale as a place for:

    • long-term employment growth
    • mixed-use development including offices, retail, services and housing
    • improved walking and cycling connections, and
    • a bus rapid transit corridor

    View the NSW Government Metropolitan Plan

    Currently, a quarter of all jobs in Warringah (around 14,000 jobs) are located within the Brookvale employment precinct.

    It includes the largest concentration of industrial land in northern Sydney (86ha), that support a diverse range of local jobs and services for people on the Northern Beaches (including car repairs, building supplies, light manufacturing and freight). It also contains Warringah Mall, which is currently undergoing expansion to provide retail facilities for a wide area, as well as range of community and education facilities (including TAFE Northern Beaches Campus).

    The NSW Government is investigating a Bus Rapid Transit corridor for the Northern Beaches, which would run through the Brookvale precinct and could create new opportunities to revitalise the area.
