Precinct Development

Why not follow the new ‘development’ with us?  Every few weeks / months we’ll take a photo and update this page with it so you can see how the new office blocks and tree planting is taking shape.

Remember this is what they promised and when:

Spring 2018 – road diversions, cranes

Summer 2018 – footbridge plans submitted

Winter 2018 – preparing for bridge (if councillors approve it)

Summer 2019 – build footbridge to take even more land from the park

Winter 2020 – finish building the horrible, ugly buildings (above) that don’t fit in with the town’s old Victorian heritage

The images below (click for a larger version) will show what we actually get. Oh yeh, and remember to count those trees when they’ve finished.
