Artarmon Local Centre - Draft Planning Strategy

A Vision for Artarmon: The village of Artarmon is attractive and well-connected providing convenience shopping and services for residents, workers and commuters. The built form and character of Hampden Rd and Wilkes Place fosters a sense of community with inviting landscaped private and public areas and open spaces. New development has retained the fine grain scale of the existing heritage frontages whilst allowing for well-designed additional residential and commercial floor space above and improved pedestrian links and cycling facilities.
