The Bowral Parking, Traffic and Transport Strategy has been developed to address the impacts of future growth that could be reasonably expected to occur within the Bowral Town Centre between present day and over the next 20 or so years.

The strategy provides realistically achievable infrastructure concepts, outlining immediate and longer term projects. The strategy also includes broad changes to management of parking, traffic and transport.

The implemented strategy will enable the Town Centre system to operate at an acceptable level of service and will improve transport equity and pedestrian safety throughout the Bowral Town Centre.

The strategy is consistent with the relevant goals outlined in the Community Strategic Plan Wingecarribee 2031+.

The road network infrastructure changes in the strategy are underpinned by the Bowral Town Centre Paramics Model and Scenario testing undertaken.

The strategy was adopted by resolution of Council on 12 December 2012 following consideration of community feedback.

The Action Plan sets out a vision across four key focus areas:

  • Attitudes and Behaviours
  • Liveable Communities

The Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) Strategy addresses two elements of the Best-Practice Management of the Water Supply and Sewerage Framework. It is a local water utility's 30-year strategy for the provision of appropriate, affordable, cost-effective and sustainable urban water services that meet community needs and protect public health and the environment. 

Preparation of the IWCM Strategy enables Council to comply with the NSW Government's Best-Practice Management of the Water Supply and Sewerage Framework. 

The development of Council's IWCM has followed the DI Water methodology outlined in the IWCM Strategy Check List (July 2014).
