Hawkesbury's Horizon…What Do You See?

Hawkesbury's revitalisation initiative - Hawkesbury Horizon - will initially focus on the larger towns of Windsor, Richmond and North Richmond followed by a review of some of the smaller key towns.

The project is just kicking off and we want to get the community involved and find out what it is you see in the future…. looking to the horizon.

  • The latest on the horizon for the Hawkesbury

    about 3 years ago

    The Hawkesbury Horizon Initiative Project Team have had a very busy six months. We have been talking to lots of different stakeholders and gathering Big Ideas about what people see is on the horizon for the Hawkesbury. Our recently prepared third newsletter talks about how we gathered 350 Big Ideas from the community, the technical investigations the team are currently doing and what the next steps are.

    Thank you to all those who attended our display at the Hawkesbury Show this year. We really appreciated the discussions we had with over 200 people about the Hawkesbury Horizon Initiative. We are very grateful to the 147 people who took the time to contribute their BIG idea for the Hawkesbury.

    There was also an opportunity for people to vote on their favourite ‘Hawkesbury Superhero’. The Hawkesbury Superheros were designed at the Youth Summit a few weeks ago by 40 youth from local high schools. More than 150 votes were received for the Hawkesbury Superhero at the Show.

    Survey at the Hawkesbury Show

    The Hawkesbury Show was held in May last year. At the Council tent there was an opportunity for the wider community to be involved in the Hawkesbury Horizon project. People from both within and outside the Region were asked to complete a survey about what they thought about the Hawkesbury. Almost 180 people completed the survey, their feedback was very interesting. People who completed the survey believed that:

    • there should be more events and festivals in the area
    • the Hawkesbury was a great place to live, visit and relax
    • the Region isn't tired or declining
    • there is great community spirit
    • the area is scenic, there are good schools, lots of history and character
    • the area is reasonably well regarded for shopping, sporting facilities, health services, culture and tourism
    • there is a desire for more business opportunities and more support for small businesses
    • there should be improved roads, public transport, bike and walking paths, more youth facilities, festivals and events and there could be more health and educational services
    • overwhelmingly people wanted the Hawkesbury to be known as a great place to raise a family.
