City of Parramatta is pleased to announce that we will be running a series of workshops for Wentworth Point over the next six months. We are engaging with the local community to develop a Place Plan for the suburb that captures feedback from residents and key stakeholder groups.

The Place Plan will establish a vision, set objectives, and determine actionable items which will help to ensure that Wentworth Point is a sustainable and thriving community into the future.

Community engagement

During stage one of community engagement which closed on Sunday 17 October 2021, Council was seeking to hear about the concerns and issues that the Wentworth Point community most wants to see addressed. This feedback will be used to help develop the agenda for workshop one. More details about the next stage of community engagement will be provided soon.

Frequently asked questions

Place Plans summarise and prioritise the local needs of an area, including but not limited to infrastructure requirements, quality and type of amenity, and open space requirements. They ensure that a place is sustainable and thriving into the future, establish a vision, set objectives, and determine actionable items.

Place Plans serve as a critical connector between Council’s adopted Community Infrastructure Strategy (CIS) and Delivery Program and Operational Plan (DPOP).

For reference, an example of a recently developed draft Place Plan for Granville is available here.

Place Plans provide strategic guidance to Council when making decisions that affect a current or future community. Place Plans provide background analysis to inform a future vision and to guide decision making. They help prioritise actions to better manage resources and funding, and enable Council to provide a coordinated response.

The Wentworth Point Place Plan will be developed with significant input from the community. Over a series of community engagement workshops, Council will work with local residents and key stakeholder groups to identify issues and concerns, and come up with a vision, objectives and list of achievable actions.

The Place Plan will also incorporate:

  • existing data such as demographic and economic data
  • landmark mapping
  • investigations into history and heritage
  • consideration for broader Council strategies and documents

Following the community engagement workshops, the draft Wentworth Point Place Plan will be put on public exhibition and then presented to Council for endorsement.

The community engagement workshops will ensure that residents and other key stakeholder groups have an opportunity to discuss the issues and concerns they have with Wentworth Point.

The workshops will also allow the community to take greater ownership of the direction for their suburb by having input on a vision, objectives and list of achievable actions for Wentworth Point.

To register your interest in participating in the community engagement workshops, please see the WORKSHOP REGISTRATION FORM tab on this page.

Fill in the Workshop Registration Form with your details, and we will contact you ahead of the next workshop.

Council recognises that there is a large Mandarin and Cantonese speaking population in Wentworth Point. To accommodate for this group, all resources will be translated into Simplified Chinese; should there be sufficient need, a translator will also be present during the workshops.

If there is a significant need to translate resources into one or more other community languages, then Council will ensure that appropriate translations are provided.

In 2016, City of Parramatta Council amalgamated with other Councils across Western Sydney, taking in parts of the former Auburn Council; this included the suburb of Wentworth Point. From 2016, City of Parramatta Council continued to host Wentworth Point Working Groups in alignment with the former Auburn Council, to provide a level of harmony in the delivery of services post amalgamation.

As of 26 November 2019, Council held the last ‘Council-hosted’ working group meeting for Wentworth Point, and after significant consideration, on 2 October 2020, the Wentworth Point Working Group Meetings were formally removed from Council’s meeting register.

It was determined that Council already has an established consultation process that the Wentworth Point community was also able to access.
