Thompson Square, in the centre of the NSW town of Windsor, is an important remnant of colonial town planning. Formalised by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1810, the Square and surrounds reflect early colonial planning, overlaid with changes and alterations over the 19th and 20th centuries. Key among the modifications has been the provision of a bridge over the Hawkesbury River.
Thompson Square is one of the oldest public squares in Australia. It is the only public space remaining from the original town and has played an important part in the history of the town. The Square reflects Macquarie’s visionary schemes for town planning excellence in the infant colony (Sheedy 1975).

Develop strategies, guidelines and actions for the conservation of the heritage significance of the subject site.
Provide an overview of the history, significance and management requriements of Thompson Square.
