Perisher Village Concept Plan approved
On 12 November 2006 Planning Minister Frank Sartor approved the Perisher Village Concept Plan. The Concept Plan for a Village Centre will include a pedestrian plaza, shops, restaurants and bars, recreation facilities and accommodation in the form of 239 apartments. The Village Centre is to be located on the existing Perisher Valley carpark with displaced daytime car spaces being relocated to other sites around the Perisher Range.
The cost of the proposed village is approximately $112 million with construction of the first stage of the village expected to commence no earlier than in the summer of 2008/09. Detailed planning applications still need to be submitted to the Department of Planning for each stage of the proposed development, and leasing and commercial arrangements with NPWS still needs to be negotiated.
The village will incorporate ecologically sustainable development principles in design and construction, as well as implement water-sensitive urban design principles to improve stormwater quality before entering creeks adjacent to the village. After 10 years of planning and consultation, the development is expected to provide up to 100 direct and 400 indirect new jobs during the construction phase.Back to top
