Leeton Shire Council endorsed the vision and concept plans for the Leeton CBD Enhancement project at its February Ordinary Council meeting.
The Leeton CBD Enhancement Committee with the assistance of Council officers consulted the community on the draft concept plans for the Leeton CBD Enhancement project. Opportunities for the community to provide feedback on the plans were extensive with over 30 submissions also coming through on the Leeton Have Your Say community engagement website. Submissions closed on Friday 10th February.
Leeton CBD Enhancement Committee Chairman Deputy Mayor Cr George Weston said that the community engagement activities that were undertaken for this project has helped firm up the community’s vision for the future development of the Leeton CBD.
“Feedback that the Committee received in relation to the concept plans was on the whole extremely positive. I would like to thank the local community for their active engagement in helping to shape the vision for the Leeton CBD and surrounds.”
“One of the most interesting engagement activities we undertook was via our Have Your Say Leeton website where we asked registered participants to rank a number of the priority strategies into possible time frames for completion, ranging from within 1-2 years, 5 years, 10 years or never.”
“Some of the strategies have received immediate support, including increasing the numbers of street trees, redeveloping Wade Avenue South and establishing large trees in the three CBD roundabouts.”
Council’s Director of Environmental and Community Services Garry Stoll said in his report to Council that some of the extra trees in the CBD, especially in the main CBD area, will be dependent upon the installation of new pedestrian crossings and the removal of some existing car parks, which will obviously require a greater level of community consultation.
A key step to progress with enhancement works in the meantime is the road swap with NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to remove Pine and Kurrajong Avenues as state controlled roads. Council will continue to lobby for this change.
Council will also further investigate grant funding opportunities to support the next phases of detailed design and delivery of the Leeton CBD Enhancement Plan.
