  • Apply to join the Stakeholder Reference Group. Complete the form
  • Meet the team at one our Katoomba events. We’ll be running events throughout November. Go to yoursay.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/katoomba-masterplan for more information.

Blue Mountains City Council is looking for people to participate in our Stakeholder Reference Group for the Katoomba Masterplan. The group will also operate as the reference group for various other Council projects in Katoomba in 2021.

Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said: “The Katoomba Masterplan will enhance the livability and vibrancy of Katoomba, the strategic centre of the Blue Mountains.

“The Stakeholder Reference Group will be made up of 8-10 members and we encourage anyone with an interest in the future of Katoomba to apply.”

The first stage of the planning process will run until February 2021 and site specific planning for the Katoomba will follow. The second stage will cover key sites, including the former Katoomba Golf Course. The masterplan will outline the vision, principles and priorities for the future of Katoomba and key sites within it.

In 2021, community consultation will also be undertaken for various other projects in Katoomba including the Scenic Southern Escarpment Masterplan.

For more information on the Katoomba Masterplan, and to apply to join the Stakeholder Reference Group, go to yoursay.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/katoomba-masterplan.

We are taking expressions of interest for the Stakeholder Reference Group until 11 November.
