The Hamilton Hill Revitalisation Strategy will guide the future development and growth of the suburb. The program of infill and renewal works will support the suburb’s growth, making it a highly accessible and desirable place to live. The Strategy aims to support the needs of Hamilton Hill’s diverse community. The City has undertaken a number of works in Hamilton Hill, and more are planned in the 2016-17 financial year.
The Hamilton Hill Revitalisation Strategy will guide the delivery of future residential development within the suburb and identify improvements and infrastructure required to support its growth. The Strategy is focused on identifying appropriate increased residential densities and strategies to encourage housing choice.
The Revitalisation Strategy aims to ensure that Hamilton Hill is an attractive place to live and visit into the future and includes a program of renewal across the suburb.
The Hamilton Hill Revitalisation Strategy aims to:
- Provide diverse opportunities for housing growth, to meet current and future needs
- Align to the infill targets of the State Planning Framework Directions 2031 and Beyond.
Hamilton Hill has a diverse community, which has an ageing population, as well as younger couples and families living in the area. While Hamilton Hill is comprised of some diverse housing stock, it isn’t varied enough to accommodate the needs of its current and future population. The suburb is culturally diverse and includes a high proportion of lower socio-economic households. As such, it needs to be an easily accessed suburb, and offer its community a high level of amenities.
The Revitalisation Strategy was adopted in November 2012 and new residential zoning changes came into effect in September 2014. A number of subdivision and development applications have already been approved throughout the area.
Concept planning has now commenced for the $400,000 Simms Road Improvement Project, with works expected to begin in early 2017.
The project will create an attractive community space, enhance the appearance of the street and create a unique character for Simms Road.
In 2016-17, the City will undertake the following projects:
- Wheeler Reserve Works ($100,000)
- Dixon Reserve Works ($250,000)
- Hobbs Reserve Works ($90,000)
- Isted Reserve Works ($60,000)
