We’re now working on the next draft of the Draft Nagambie Streetscape plan to reflect the feedback we’re hearing from the community.
Key themes are emerging with the community clearly requesting more parking – both for cars and long vehicles – and maintaining the divided road on the north bound lane.
When we have our next draft ready we’ll host further feedback sessions – we encourage you to watch this space for updates.
Council is listening, we welcome your feedback, and we want to make change to ensure we’re meeting your needs.
Draft Nagambie Streetscape Plan
Bigger and revitalised green spaces, improved pedestrian access and an opportunity to celebrate the region’s historical racing and breeding credentials are just some of the ideas mooted in draft Streetscape Masterplan for Nagambie.
In partnership with Go Nagambie, Strathbogie Shire Council engaged Planit Consulting to develop the masterplan that can be implemented as a staged approach in coming years.
The High Street design has put a focus on key landmarks like the water tower, cenotaph, old mill and the median strip.
The plans outline the potential relocation of public amenities, improved footpaths and street plantings, an alfresco area for outdoor dining and market spaces in the central median strip that interact with the shops.
Other opportunities identified include re-aligning the north bound road around the eastern side of the water tank, to create a larger open space.
There is also the potential for a ‘Thoroughbred Walk’ which celebrates the historical racing and breeding credentials of the region with the Black Caviar Statue being a centrepiece.
