Precinct and Locality Plans

The Southern Escarpment Masterplan is a long term strategic planning document that will guide future design and development of Council owned and operated public spaces and visitor destinations on the southern side of Katoomba, Leura, and Wentworth Falls. Due to the large scale of the Masterplan, sites within the Masterplan are being treated in a hierarchy and include Precinct Plans and Locality Plans. Precinct Plans are typically characterised by:

  • high levels of visitor use
  • significant level of existing facilities and close proximity to public toilets
  • a destination with multiple recreation or tourism options
  • connections to other attractions or tourism opportunities
  • connections to public transport.

By comparison, locality plans will be developed for the simpler sites and reflect the more low key nature of those sites. Locality plans are typically characterised by:

  • singular destination or attraction
  • short term visitation
  • good connection and accessibility with transport links and nearby attractions
  • supporting infrastructure to accommodate visitor use.
