The University of Western Sydney (UWS) is investigating the potential to develop a University Based Retirement Community (UBRC) on the UWS Hawkesbury campus. Jackson Teece was engaged to prepare a Master Plan for the UBRC which would comprise a Retirement Village, Club House, Community Centre, Community Gardens, Caravan Parking, and in the longer term a Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF). The RACF would be unique for the fact that it would be a commercial operational facility as well as a teaching facility.

The proposed development site is located within Precinct 7 of the Haskesbury Campus Master Plan – the “sustainable living precinct” – which was prepared by Jackson Teece in 2011.
