Toowoomba Regional Council’s Planning and Development Committee in Australia has endorsed a civic precinct master plan featuring a people’s precinct with community facilities, easy pedestrian access and underground parking.

Planning and Development Committee chair Councillor Bill Cahill said: "This is a prospectus for potential investors who will be invited to contribute to the staged development of vital public infrastructure."

The civic precinct is considered a prime site for development, with prospects for future public infrastructure that will benefit the community.

According to Cahill, the plans would enable future councils to improve building designs, specifically landscaping, and other factors, to ensure the area functions as a public facility.

"The plans would enable future councils to improve building designs…to ensure the area functions as a public facility."

The master plan allows for flexibility in building designs and how they could be arranged around the site, and focuses on previous goals to make the area Toowoomba’s civic heart.

"The new Toowoomba city library, which is under construction, is an anchor building for the site."

Under the new master plan, some buildings will be refurbished while others will be entirely redeveloped.

Based on the availability of funding for a new council building, construction projects will be staged at the corner of Little and Victoria streets.

Other projects in the plan include a new office building for commercial and state government offices, the western expansion of City Hall, and a new business centre in addition to a western expansion of Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery.
