Kettering Walking Plan
Tasmania | Regional
The community, through the Vincent Vision 2024 process, identified a number of City qualities, which they wanted to preserve. For the Leederville town centre, they wanted a strong civic heart with an informal character and style. The community wanted to preserve the vibrant mix of land use and activities and supported interesting design and a mix of residential housing. The town centre was to preserve the 1900’s-era facades to the main street, reinforcing a strong sense of place.
The vision for Leederville was expressed in a series of principles, some of which would allow for Oxford Street to meet is full potential:
This was reinforced in the Imagine Vincent – Strategic Community Plan process which outlined the following priorities for the City:
The adopted Leederville Town Centre Masterplan divides the Leederville town centre into eight precincts, with specific design guidelines for development. The guidelines aim to retain the current character and ‘feel’ of Oxford Street, whilst integrating and acknowledging the need for re-development.
The City is preparing a Precinct Structure Plan for the area which will adapt the existing Town Centre Master Plan, through research and consultation, to an updated planning framework which will guide future development of the area whilst maintaining the established character. Additionally, the City is preparing a Place Plan for the town centre which will guide investment in the public realm to enhance the vibrancy, character, and ability to access the town centre on foot, bicycle, or public transportation.
