Highfields is a thriving and growing urban hub with population projections suggesting that an additional 7000 people will call Highfields home by 2031. The Central Highfields area offers a wide range of goods and services that will need to evolve further in the future to cater for anticipated growth and changing needs within the community.
We want to ensure that this evolution is well planned, and that the significant social, cultural and community infrastructure that will be required can be delivered. The Master Plan for central Highfields will provide a blueprint that ensures future developments – community, commercial and residential – align with expectations. Once complete it will set a foundation for central Highfields to become a vibrant place that reflects community aspirations and values.
Extensive community engagement is happening in October and November, and we encourage the Highfields community to participate. This is a genuine opportunity for you to be involved in shaping the future design of one of the major centres of our region: a chance to imagine the future and dream big for Highfields.
