August 2022 consultation:
Cumberland City Council has prepared a new Strategic Masterplan to guide the development of a continuous, publicly accessible, open space commuter and recreational corridor between Prospect Reservoir in the west and Potts Hill in the east.
The vision for the Prospect Pipeline Corridor is to enhance the established corridor in the west whilst extending connections in the east utilising a portion of the water pipeline corridor, to provide recreational linkages for pedestrians and cyclists to nearby parklands and shopping precincts.
Guided by the NSW Green Grid strategy, which aims to deliver an interconnected network of open space connections throughout metropolitan Sydney, the Prospect Pipeline Corridor traverses the suburbs of Greystanes, Guildford, Chester Hill and Regents Park.
Key objectives of our Strategic Masterplan include:
- Connect to and heal country
- Stitch together existing open spaces and ecosystems
- Bring together communities
- Support active and equitable modes of transport
- Embed environmental resilience
- Retain existing infrastructure uses
The area of the Prospect Pipeline Corridor Study Area can be seen below:
The project is supported by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment and involves a range of stakeholders including local councils, state agencies, community groups, sporting associations, indigenous groups, residents and visitors. These groups have informed the development of the Strategic Masterplan and will continue to contribute to the detailed planning, design and implementation of initiatives within the plan.
