Place Design Group has been assigned the task of creating a detailed design for the revitalisation of Richmond, South Windsor and Windsor town centres.

Hawkesbury Council engaged the firm as part of the Western Parklans City Liveability Program.

Place Design Group will work to a brief from the project's masterplan, creating a design that "will celebrate existing heritage and enhance public spaces through public domain upgrades, activation initiatives and place-making, with the aim to re-energise the charm of the Hawkesbury region".

According to council, this design phase of the Maste Plan and Public Domain Plan, "Revitalising Our Town Centres of Richmond, South Windsor and Windsor", has specific aims for each centre:

  • Richmond - to be an "activated cultural destination";
  • South Windsor - to be an updated contemporary town centre; and
  • Windsor - to focus on river heritage, civic boulevards and vibrant people places.

Once completed, the designs will be placed on council's engagement website Your Hawkesbury Your Say [yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au].
