CBD Masterplan

CBD enhancement

The draft CBD Master Plan has been prepared for Goulburn to guide further CBD improvements over the next 15-20 years.

The key strategies in the draft Plan include:

- A signage strategy to provide better “way finding” to and within the CBD.

- A strategy for activating existing laneways and establishing new pedestrian friendly accessroutes including investigating opportunities to create further pedestrian arcades and walkways between existing and new parking areas and Auburn Street such as Cartwright Place and Huntley car park.

- Additional outdoor dining spaces to complement Council’s Outdoor Dining Policy.

- Landscaping recommendations to improve the appeal of Auburn Street, encourage pedestrian activity and clearly communicate the entrances to the CBD.

- Opportunities for improvements to and expansion of existing public parking facilities and angle and parallel parking within the CBD, including the layout of Cartwright Place and Ellesmere Street.

- Development of a material and colour palette that creates consistency for use in public areas and provides guidance for private property owners in the CBD to improve the overall streetscape appeal. This work will complement the existing CBD beautification works undertaken in Auburn Street.

- Better connectivity of places and way finding within the CBD and connecting the CBD with other centres of activity in the surrounding area eg Victoria Park, which could occur through the use of landscaping and consistency in material finishes along Montague Street.


The document is on public exhibition until the 28th February 2018. Submissions may be emailed to council@goulburn.nsw.gov.au or posted to the General Manager, Locked Bag 22, Goulburn, NSW, 2580

  • How much will it cost the ratepayers of Goulburn to purchase the building and then knock it down. The cost of the whole procedure should also be knows to your ratepayers

    Elizabeth asked 21 days ago

    Hi Elizabeth,

    We don't have costings yet as we haven't investigated purchasing the building. 

    We want to know if the community would see this as a worthwhile project, and then we will investigate the costings. Before going ahead with purchase and knock down the community will again be given a chance to have a say, and Councillors would then make a decision at an open Council meeting.


    Regards, Jackson (Communications)
