Wickham Master Plan

The  Wickham Master Plan (pdf) adopted by Council on 28 November 2017, outlines the vision of how the area is to evolve over a 25 year horizon from a semi-industrial suburb into a mixed use urban area reinforcing the Newcastle City Centre core within adjoining Newcastle West.  The master plan also identifies strategies and actions for implementation based on extensive background investigation and consultation with key stakeholders.
