Rockhampton CBD Redevelopment Framework


Rockhampton Regional Council recognises that a vibrant, strong and prosperous Central Business District is critical for the long-term economic success of the city of Rockhampton and the broader region. With this in mind, Council commissioned the preparation of the Rockhampton CBD Redevelopment Framework, a comprehensive document designed to lead the revitalisation of the CBD. 

The framework contains strategic, long term directions for economic, community and cultural development and increased residential living options as well as a prioritised list of projects which will deliver outcomes for the local community and stakeholders.

In recognition of the critical role that the public realm will play in the revitalisation of the Rockhampton CBD, Council has prepared a Streetscape Design Manual to inform and guide all future decisions that relate to the streets of the CBD. This manual represents a critical outcome of the Rockhampton CBD Redevelopment Framework that identified the strategic importance of the city streets as a vital asset for people, activity and vibrancy.
