Parade Masterplan on hold

posted 13 Sept 2018, 23:25 by Christel Mex
At the 12 September Council meeting, we considered 159 submissions that were received on the draft master plan for The Parade. There was great feedback about the design quality and the need to spruce up the appearance of this significant community asset, which would make it more accessible for residents and shoppers. However, I supported the successful motion to defer the adoption of the plan pending a more detailed study into traffic movements, especially around the George Street intersection. I was personally concerned about retaining the left-hand slip lane. Even though the facelift is desperately needed, it is worth the wait to make it right. Thanks to all the residents and business owners who took the time to make such considered submissions.
