Revitalising North Richmond

Design quality must be supported by a valued social and community network.

To achieve a safe, vibrant, and connected North Richmond community, design quality must be supported by a valued social and community network to create an ‘ecology of success.’

A successful place is brought to life by the strength of its community. Great places are created when residents and communities are empowered to succeed. The transformation of the site will celebrate its rich cultural diversity and support growth and learning opportunities that connect to North Richmond’s unique story.

A good community balances housing with great destinations to work, meet, and learn. Great homes are sustainable in their design and are respectful of their neighbours. Great spaces are diverse and connected, allowing people to be play sports or simply sit and relax. They should also represent the history and identity of the community that live there.

This master plan is based on the principle of Connection with Country, sharing the complexity of Country as layers. The master plan seeks to connect and contribute to these layers, offering ways where both Country, and People on Country are sustained.
