Council is committed to working with the community throughout the process of public domain improvement in Cronulla. The Cronulla Public Domain Master Plan is the next major step in this process. The Master Plan:

  • builds on the fresh ideas generated by the 2014 Cronulla Design Ideas Competition
  • works toward achieving the goals established in the subsequent Cronulla Public Domain Strategy
  • addresses ongoing challenges surrounding traffic, parking, pedestrian movement and the amenity of the Cronulla Plaza.

Council has engaged a specialist consultant team led by Gallagher Studio to prepare the Master Plan and to fully engage with the community. Community engagement for the project commenced in November 2016 and is ongoing.  See below for details on how you can be involved.


The purpose of the Master Plan is to facilitate a more connected and vibrant Cronulla Centre, recognising Cronulla's importance as a town centre and visitor destination.


The objectives of the Master Plan are to:

  • maintain and enhance Cronulla's distinctive place qualities
  • support Cronulla's role as a town centre and important visitor destination
  • enhance the amenity and accessibility of the Cronulla Centre's public domain
  • provide a comprehensive approach to the long-term development of the public domain within the Cronulla Centre


    The Master Plan will:

    • produce an overall design concept to enhance Cronulla Centre’s public domain
    • contain proposals to improve local area traffic management and parking
    • inform future detail design and construction of public domain works
