Lawson Crown Lands Masterplan

The draft Lawson Crown Lands Masterplan was developed with extensive community consultation and supports achievement of our community strategic objective creating vibrant places for people to live, work and play. At its meeting on 26 February 2019 the Council resolved to place the draft masterplan on exhibition for public comment.

The draft masterplan will be on exhibition from Wednesday 6 March to Thursday 4 April 2019 and submissions will be received up until COB 18 April 2019.

You can access the draft masterplan and supporting documents here and hard copies will be on exhibition at Lawson Library and Council's Springwood and Katoomba administration centres. Submission forms will be available to provide comment.

The concepts stage one and two demonstrate how the potential facilities could be laid out on the ground and will be subject to detailed design, that may require minor movements.

    Council acknowledges that the safety of dogs in the proposed dog off-leash area is of interest to dog owners, particularly in relation to the amount of treed versus grassed space, and the potential for snakes. Council will consider all feedback on the draft masterplan and attempt to address concerns raised by dog owners in the detailed design process which will follow the masterplanning process. The detailed designs of facilities that are proposed in Stage 1 of the draft masterplan will be placed on public exhibition in the future for further public comment.
