St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan

To help us prepare the St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan, we would like to better understand community aspirations for St Marys and seek your ideas to inform the development of a vision and desired future character for the Town Centre.

The landscape is changing in St Marys as a result of a significant amount of State Government investment in infrastructure. Council is preparing for these changes by developing St Marys 2041 – a strategic planning pathway to guide the development of the Town Centre for the next 20 years.

St Marys 2041 includes three Planning Pathways: the development of a Structure Plan (Stage 1), followed by a Masterplan (Stage 2), which will ultimately inform potential amendments to the Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan (Stage 3).

Council is currently developing the draft St Marys Town Centre Structure Plan (The Structure Plan). The Structure Plan aims to manage growth and change in St Marys as it develops over the next twenty years. It will provide an environmental, social and economic understanding of the existing conditions of the Town Centre, and develop a vision statement, local character statement and strategic and spatial planning directions.

The Structure Plan is a technical document that underpins the Corridors and Centres Strategy, which is one of the components of Council’s Places of Penrith strategic planning framework.

    WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

    Feedback provided by the community as part of the early engagement activities will be reviewed and will inform the development of vision and character statements for St Marys. The draft Structure Plan will be considered by the Council in mid-late 2022 for endorsement for public exhibition. The public exhibition provides another opportunity for the community and interested stakeholders to comment on the directions in the draft Structure Plan. Subsequently, the final Structure Plan will be considered by the Council in late-2022 – early 2023 for endorsement.
