New master plan for Balfour Park precinct

Currently under construction is the BRT route along Louis Botha Avenue and it is one of the major elements of the proposed Balfour Park Precinct Plan.


The proposed Balfour Park Precinct Plan is intended to be a master plan that links all the elements of urban design into a holistic, sustainable and desirable framework for development.

This is according to Ward 74 councillor David Fisher who said the plan was a high-level design framework for the area around Balfour Park.

There will be a meeting at Northview High School on 5 July at 6pm to introduce the plan and Fisher is inviting residents to attend.

“The meeting is to inform the public about the intentions of the project and also to introduce the team and notify the community of the planned public engagements,” said Fisher. “It is intended to outline the sort of initiatives that would be desirable for the precinct.

“It [the plan] includes elements of public development but more importantly it guides and encourages private development, both by professional developers but also residents and businesses in the area.

“It is intended to be a master plan that links all the elements of urban design into a holistic, sustainable and desirable framework for development.”

The suburbs around Balfour Park, Highlands North and its extensions, Waverley, Savoy, Gresswold and Kew, will attract a new interest because of the BRT bus route making access easy and affordable.

He said residents and businesses in these areas should be aware of the precinct plan as it would assist them in making informed and sound decisions.

“I would encourage as many people to attend and be active and engaged with the team that is guiding and managing the plan. It is their obligation to participate.”
