Bowral South New Living Area

The Bowral South New Living Area (NLA) is one of the six new living areas strategically identified in our Local Housing Strategy, which was adopted in July 2021. It is now time to implement the strategy by preparing a Master Plan and Servicing Strategy for infrastructure, using the funding received from the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE).

Council is committed to making provisions for a diversity of housing that caters to the needs of our community at different stages of life. The housing shortage across the State and across our rural Shire requires careful long-term strategic planning, well-considered design and community consensus for moving forward. Below is a map showing the boundaries of the Bowral South NLA.

Bowral South NLA gives us a chance to create a small village centre to serve Bowral South, East Bowral, Burradoo residents and beyond; and provide a variety of new dwellings, public parks and local amenities to meet the needs of the existing and new community. It also provides an opportunity to open the riverfront for public open space.

The Master Plan will form the basis of site-specific Development Control Plan (DCP), to ensure that new development is in keeping with community’s expectations and respects local character. The Servicing Strategy will identify the necessary infrastructure upgrades as the area develops and a funding mechanism to coordinate the delivery of all infrastructure equitably.

Council is currently working with design and engineering consultants to understand the opportunities and constraints of the site. Technical due diligence investigations and a commercial analysis will inform where a small village centre, open spaces and new homes can be best sited together, to serve our local and growing communtiy.
