Re: Abercrombie Precinct Development – Community workshop
Over the past two months the University has been consulting with our neighbours and other key stakeholders, as part of a review of our plans for a new building to house the University’s Business School at the Abercrombie Precinct in Darlington.
The University has committed to addressing concerns about the initial proposal to ensure we produce a more integrated facility that respects the local character of the streetscape. To date, feedback from stakeholders and the community has focused on reducing the overall bulk and scale of the original proposal.
Feedback from our recent consultation has also identified other items that the community would like to see taken into consideration when preparing our revised plans for the site. These include:
- Respecting the heritage of the site
- Retention of existing trees on the site
- Pedestrian safety and useful pedestrian links through the site
- Publically accessible open space
- Overshadowing and noise management
- Disruption from construction related activities, and
- Traffic, parking and access
The University’s design team are close to finalising the revised plan, which is expected to be submitted to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure towards the end February 2012.
Before submitting the revised plan, the University welcomes your input. As a valued neighbour, I invite you to a community information session. This session will include an update on our plans and give you an opportunity to provide your feedback, to help ensure we get this precinct right for the
