BELLINGEN TOWN CENTRE BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT

Stage 3 works at Bridge Street will commence in the first quarter of 2018 closely followed by the final section of Church Street North Precinct. Council has applied for grant funding for the Church Street North Precinct which it is hoping will be released in February 2018 under the Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Some necessary temporary arrangements were made to ensure that the transition between the stages of the works in Church Street provided adequate safety and functionality for the community. 

Late last year, Council voted to progress the design of Church Street North Café Precinct in keeping with the principles of the Bellingen Town Centre Beautification Project.  The requested interactive play space in Church Street North Café Precinct will not go ahead as reflected in the most current community engagement process.

Additional consultation with Church Street businesses and interested community members to discuss the final design and street furniture arrangements for the Church Street North Precinct will be ongoing throughout this phase of the project. Further information can be found on Council’s ‘Create’ Community Engagement Hub at https://create.bellingen.nsw.gov.au.
