2019 Review of Local Shops
As part of the Better Neighbourhood Project (BNP), Council has allocated $3 million over the next two years to improving neighbourhood centres. Council invested more than $7 million into neighbourhoods between 2011 and 2016 via the BNP, based on consultations with the community.
Examples of projects delivered under this program include upgrades to town centres and streetscapes at Ermington, Westmead and Carlingford, and improvements to the Mobbs Lane shops in Carlingford and Iron Street shops in North Parramatta. Council is able to deliver upgrades to Council-owned assets, such as footpaths, nature strips, street furniture and carparks.
In February 2019, Council asked the community to help decide which centres should be improved and what upgrades should be made to make these centres more attractive and convenient to use. Head to Council’s engagement portal to see a full summary of what we heard from the community. The local shops that have been selected for upgrades will be announced soon. Works are anticipated to begin between 2020 and 2021. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this consultation.
The Better Neighbourhood Project (BNP) occurs every two years. For more information about this project, please contact Council’s Place Services Team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 02 9806 5050.
