We've prepared local planning policy 3.17 to provide guidance for new development in the Hilton Local Centre. The purpose of the policy is to ensure coordinated design of development in the policy areas. You can view the policy area above which includes both area 1 and area 2.

Local planning policy 3.17 (Hilton Town Centre) was developed following changes to our local planning scheme to facilitate mixed use development in this area. The policy will provide guidance on new development to ensure it adds to the character of Hilton, integrates and responds to the surrounding area, and improves the interaction with South Street.

It proposes a series of design elements and new developments will need to address how they achieve the design criteria for each of these elements. They include:

  • development context
  • site planning, orientation and setbacks
  • architectural expression and articulation
  • South Street road reservation area
  • corner buildings
  • landscape design and public domain interface
  • car parking and vehicle access and
  • building services.
