Exhibition of Draft Thompson Square Conservation Management Plan

Hawkesbury City Council will place the Draft Thompson Square Conservation Management Plan on public exhibition from Friday, 24 August 2018 to Monday, 24 September 2018.

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 will be available for viewing during the exhibition period on Council’s website at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au, on Council’s online community engagement site www.yourhawkesburyyoursay.com.au or between 8:30am and 5pm Monday to Friday at Council’s Administration Building, 366 George Street, Windsor.
