Further to previous correspondence, Council is currently programming the  initial works for the Bellingen Main Street Beautification Project – Church Street North Precinct.

NOTE:  Nightworks will be undertaken commencing on Sunday 14 October 2018, weather permitting to minimise disruption to the motorists and the community.  These nightworks will occur between the hours of 4pm and 1am.

These works are anticipated  to commence on Sunday 14  October 2018. The works will involve:

1.Demolition of existing concrete footpath paving.

2.Installation of conduits for new services and relocation of existing servicesConstruction of new kerb and guttering

3.Installation of landscape walls and associated footings

4.Installation of concrete footpath

5.Installation of cobble stones

These works are anticipated to be completed  by the end of November 2018 subject to weather and  latent conditions.

Preliminary works such as survey, survey set-out  and adjustment of the existing building awning posts may occur in the weeks leading up to Sunday 14 October 2018. This may be done to facilitate the efficiency of the works for this portion of the project.

The works described will have a significant impact on parking, vehicular access and pedestrian flow.  However, Council will make every attempt to minimise the impact as far as reasonably practical by undertaking works (where possible) outside business hours and providing alternative routes for vehicles and pedestrians.

Some minor tree pruning may be undertaken and further advice on the timing of this activity will be provided in a future update.
