The Pittsworth Pioneer Historical Village Strategic Master Plan is an important planning tool for the growth of the facility. The plan was developed following engagement with each of the user groups of the facility, to gain a better understanding of their current needs and what they anticipate the needs will be, moving into the future.

The Master Plan sets out a structural framework for any future site works, ensuring any proposed interventions address and respond to the overarching site intent – as a celebration of Pittsworth’s pioneering culture and heritage.

In addition to this, the Master Plan will provide community groups with a blueprint to support future grant funding requests.
