The vision for North Richmond

North Richmond is home to many vibrant, diverse and proud communities.

We’ve been working with the North Richmond community to better understand how we can achieve our shared vision of creating a safe, inclusive and connected place to live, work and visit.

As well as building more homes through the Big Housing Build, we’re investing in new and upgraded community facilities throughout the precinct for residents and visitors to use and enjoy.

This network of gardens, playgrounds, multi-use community rooms, outdoor gyms, sporting facilities and recreational spaces will be connected by well-lit pathways.

We’re committed to working with the community to better understand how we can strengthen inclusion, celebrate diversity and create a bright future for all residents and visitors.
