At this extraordinary time, at an extraordinary site in our City within a World Heritage Area, we have an amazing opportunity to do something special. We urgently need to take better care of nature to protect our own health. Our City is perfectly positioned to explore ways to care for our planet’s natural systems and share these solutions globally. With Traditional Custodians, our community, educators and researchers from a number of universities, Blue Mountains City Council is exploring opportunities related to planetary health initiatives at the former Katoomba Golf Course precinct (clubhouse and adjoining 30 hectares of public land). We are doing this for the long-term benefit of our City and our community and to create new job opportunities.

The first round of community consultation ended on 14 April 2022. Thank you to everyone who shared their vision online, or in person. The feedback received during the early engagement phase was consolidated and reported to Council in July 2022.

See: Former Katoomba Golf Course Precinct Plan: Community Engagement Report.

We are now reviewing the input, ideas and feedback provided and are currently developing a draft Precinct Plan, which we are hoping to share with you in early 2023.

Precinct Plans are long-term planning documents, which describe and illustrate the vision, guiding principles and priorities for the future of a particular area or site. The former Katoomba Golf Course Precinct Plan will set out the vision, principles and directions for its future development as a site for community and visitors to gather, learn and share, and will suggest potential uses and activities that will contribute to positive long-term economic, environmental, cultural and social outcomes for the Blue Mountains. This plan will consider both what must be done to protect and preserve the distinctive qualities of this unique site, as well as the aspirations to re-activate it as a thriving, healthy, sustainable, and cherished precinct for the community.

A second stage of community consultation to encourage feedback on the draft precinct plan is scheduled for the first half of 2023.
