Exhibition of Draft Thompson Square Conservation Management Plan

Hawkesbury City Council is exhibiting the Draft Thompson Square Conservation Management Plan.

Thompson Square is located in Windsor, the third oldest place of British settlement in Australia, and was named by the then Governor Lachlan Macquarie in recognition of the emancipist Andrew Thompson. Thompson Square and its immediate surrounds is also recognised as the oldest surviving public square in Australia, and was established in 1811 by Governor Macquarie.

The purpose of the Conservation Management Plan is to ensure that the historically significant features of the Thompson Square Conservation Area are preserved for future generations.  The Conservation Management Plan has been prepared to guide ongoing conservation and management by Council and other relevant bodies.

The Draft Conservation Management Plan is on public exhibition for the period Friday 24 August 2018 to Monday 24 September 2018.

The Draft Conservation Management Plan can be viewed here (pdf- 28.1MB) during the exhibition period, on Council’s online community engagement site, or between 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday at Council’s Administration Office, 366 George Street, Windsor.
