Plan highlights

The Spring Hill Neighbourhood Plan promotes economic development while protecting the highly valued character that makes the suburb unique. The plan achieves this by:

  • establishing Astor Terrace as a focus for commercial development supported by shops, restaurants and bars
  • promoting the revival of Boundary Street as a vibrant centre with shops, restaurants and cafes
  • enabling the expansion of educational and medical institutions in a way that minimises impacts on surrounding sites
  • enabling new high-density development to occur between Boundary Street and the City Centre
  • protecting the highly valued heritage and character of the area and adding sites to Council's heritage register.
