Where: Bong Bong Road, Mittagong
Council: Wingecarribee Area: 116ha
What’s proposed: We are transforming this former child welfare facility into a masterplanned community with 600 dwellings on lots ranging from 300-4,000m2, a village centre including retail, child care and community facilities, and 30ha of open space incorporating parks, local woodland and an extensive riparian corridor.
Our role: We are managing the planning and development in a partnering arrangement with the site owner, The Department of Family and Community Services.
Where it’s up to: This project is in its delivery and sales phase, with the first 250 lots now constructed and sold. Construction works are turning to focus on the undergrounding of the existing overhead transmission lines, the central open space corridor lands as well as completion of two feature playgrounds known as the ‘Village Green’ and ‘Rotherwood Park’. Design and planning works are also well advanced for the Renwick Village Centre and the delivery of further residential lots on the eastern side of the central corridor lands.
Features: Renwick will feature social and environmental sustainability initiatives that respect and reinterpret the unique Highlands character of the area. The project will also promote a healthy lifestyle, with the site masterplan addressing the National Heart Foundation’s ’Healthy by Design’ principles.
