A product of the Commission’s Collaboration Areas program, the Kogarah Place Strategy is a significant milestone for city making in Kogarah. It brings together the aspirations of Bayside and Georges River Councils along with multiple organisations that have a role to play in the future of the area. The Place Strategy identifies challenges and opportunities for the area and establishes actions to deliver the shared vision for this Collaboration Area to evolve into a vibrant health, knowledge and wellness precinct.
Spanning across two Local Government Areas and both the Eastern City District and South District, Kogarah’s needs as a place, strategic centre, health and education precinct are unique. The Place Strategy has been co-designed with both councils, government agencies and other key stakeholders. It recognises the complex, place-specific issues of the area and sets out a pathway that will reveal and enhance the area’s specialisations, unique character and contribution to Greater Sydney.
The Kogarah Collaboration Area Place Strategy brings together expertise and local knowledge to guide collaboration, prioritise investment and establish enduring place-based governance to support Kogarah’s evolution into the future.
