The Urban Taskforce thanks Fairfield City Council for the opportunity to comment on the Urban Design Study Fairfield City Centre – Key Sites (the Urban Design Study) and associated documents. Our comments are provided in this submission for consideration.
The Urban Taskforce has been approached by a number of our members regarding the proposed changes to Fairfield City Centre. We understand council has prepared the Draft Urban Design Study to guide future development in Fairfield City Centre, by recommending buildings heights to allow new development, provide for an increase in apartments and grow the local economy, as well as provide new laneways, pedestrian connections and public spaces. We commend the work completed by council so far and make the following suggestions which we believe will enhance council’s proposed changes.
