Old Spaces, New Places - Etwell Street Revitalisation project

Consultation has concluded

'Old Places, New Spaces' (OPNS) is a program targeting locations within the Town that can be renewed and upgraded for greater community use and benefit. This program was developed following a Council resolution to investigate alternative options for the use of laneways and intersections along Albany Highway and was later broadened by the Town to include all public areas of interest, also known as the public realm. This is the second project that falls within this program.

In collaboration with local residents, business owners and land owners, we’ve developed a draft concept plan to revitalise the Etwell Street Local Centre. The project aims to upgrade the public realm on Etwell Street between Riverview Road and Northampton Street to create a vibrant local centre and community meeting place. The upgrade aims to increase the role Etwell Street Local Centre plays in the lifestyle of local residents.

What is happening now?

At the Town’s Ordinary Council Meeting in December 2019, Council resolved to approves the Etwell Street Local Centre Revitalisation Plan to proceed to the Detailed Design Phase and acknowledges the submissions received during the public advertising period. Please refer to the council minutes on the Town's website for further information.
