Renwick Community Centre

The suburb of Renwick has steadily grown and taken shape over the last couple of years and it was exciting to recently hear from UrbanGrowth NSW that the development application for the Renwick Community Centre would soon be lodged.

This important facility will become a central hub for residents and we are working with our planning team to ensure that you are offered an opportunity to view the architect’s vision and provide feedback on the design when it is publicly exhibited.

Once built the Community Centre will become a Council owned facility and therefore require a management plan to ensure that its use and ongoing maintenance is administered correctly. We will be seeking community involvement in the development of this plan.

We look forward to working with you to ensure the Renwick Community Centre becomes a well-loved and regularly used facility.

  • Landcom’s 2019 Healthy and Inclusive Places survey

    19 days ago

    Surveys are currently being delivered to Renwick residents by the Landcom team.

    Here's what they have to say about it:

    Landcom has always aimed to be a leader in sustainability and we publicly report on our sustainability performance every year. We have an endorsed series of sustainability indicators and targets in our Sustainable Places Strategy which guides how sustainability is delivered in all that we do. There are four main components within the strategy - environmental, social and economic sustainability, and governance. The Healthy and Inclusive Places pillar of the strategy addresses social sustainability themes. There are several indicators and targets within this pillar to drive improved performance and act as measures to determine how well we deliver on our social sustainability goals.
    To measure our social sustainability performance, we collect data through our Healthy and Inclusive Places survey. The survey is aimed towards residents who live in Landcom projects and asks individual residents’ questions related to liveability, health, safety, affordability and wellbeing. The survey includes 32 questions and responses are collected in person, online and on the telephone. All responses are de-identified and will be aggregated.
    This will be our second survey. Our first survey was conducted in 2018 and over 500 responses were received. Our performance results are in the 2018 Sustainability Report.
    Complete the survey between 15 April and 17 May 2019 at www.landcom.com.au/surveys/healthy-and-inclusive-places-survey-2019/

  • Renwick pathway connections

    about 1 month ago

    As part of the Renwick development, Wingecarribee Shire Council worked with Landcom to ensure pathways would be constructed to link residents with the Mittagong Railway Station and other locations like Mittagong swimming pool and the sports oval.

    Council has recently been informed by Landcom that they intend to construct the pathway in front of your property in the second half of 2019.

    While their contractors will be in touch with residents just prior to the works commencing we thought that property owners would like to be informed about the work.

    We anticipated that there would be some questions about the path construction so have asked Landcom to provide some answers and details of the route plan - see Renwick Pathway FAQs.

    For further information about the pathways please contact:

  • Council to consider approving development application

    11 months ago

    Wingecarribee Shire Council will consider approving a Development Application for the Renwick Community Centre on 27 June 2018.

    The design has been adjusted following submissions received during a public exhibition period in 2017 and extended period of consultation with Landcom, Water NSW and Council officers.

    As a Crown Application, Council must obtain approval from the applicant prior to imposing conditions on any consent, or if the proposal is not supported it must be referred to the Joint Regional Planning Panel for consideration.

    Council staff have recommended approval of the proposal on this occasion.

    Wingecarribee Shire Council will consider approving a Development Application for the Renwick Community Centre on 27 June 2018.

    The design has been adjusted following submissions received during a public exhibition period in 2017 and extended period of consultation with Landcom, Water NSW and Council officers.

    As a Crown Application, Council must obtain approval from the applicant prior to imposing conditions on any consent, or if the proposal is not supported it must be referred to the Joint Regional Planning Panel for consideration.

    Council staff have recommended approval of the proposal on this occasion.

    Changes to the design

    The architectural design of the building has not significantly changed however sustainable water use, energy efficiency and access for centre users needed to be improved. The following changes were agreed upon by Council assessing officers and the applicant:

    • The original DA nominated 17 on-site parking spaces and five parking spaces within new bays in the footpath reserve. Plans have since been amended to increase on-site parking to 41 car parking spaces and provide an ‘entry-only’ crossing from Whitfield Lane and ‘exit only’ crossing to Langley Avenue. The spaces would be provided along the Langley Avenue end of the site within the area previously labelled 'possible community garden'.
    • A combined mini-bus/service bay/loading bay is proposed adjacent to the north west corner of the area. This bay is linked by ramps leading along the northern and western sides of the community centre allowing the movement of trolleys and delivery items to and from the centre.
    • It is recommended that all light fittings be energy efficient and all water fittings of a 5 star efficiency rating.
    • The installation of rainwater tanks to a minimum of 10,000L is proposed for re-use in the maintenance of exterior surfaces and landscaping.
    • Secured bicycle parking spaces to be located in a more visible position within the site with a minimum of 10 bicycle parking spaces ancillary to the community facility and 10 spaces available within the village square.


    To read the detailed report and attachments visit http://www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/council-meeting-agendas-minutes and open the Agenda for 27 June 2018.

    Landcom will construct the Renwick Community Centre before transferring ownership to Wingecarribee Shire Council.
