The synthetic grass that’s been laid in the Church Street north precinct is a temporary measure until the work can be resumed in February or March, after grant funding has been confirmed.
Council has been told grant announcements will be made early in the new year.
Funding has already been received for stage 3 works at Bridge Street and Council is hoping to align that work with the final work in Church St.
At its November 25 meeting, Council resolved:
- To progress the design of Church Street North Café Precinct in keeping with the principles of the Bellingen Town Centre Beautification Project.
- To not include the requested interactive play space in Church Street North Café Precinct as reflected in the most current community engagement process.
- To seek alternative funding source to support future project construction.
Council will be arranging a meeting with Church Street businesses and interested members of the public in the new year to discuss the final design and street furniture arrangements.
