Have your say on 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 a draft streetscape plan for Nagambie.

In partnership with Go Nagambie, Strathbogie Shire Council engaged Planit Consulting to develop a draft streetscape plan that can be implemented as a staged approach in coming years.

Mayor, Cr Chris Raeburn, said Council was now seeking feedback on the draft plan.

“We’re keen to hear the Nagambie community’s feedback on the plan, which aim to revitalise the central business area,” Cr Raeburn said.

“The High Street design has put a focus on key landmarks like the water towner, cenotaph, old mill and the median strip.

“The plan outlines 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,” he said.

Cr Raeburn said the aim of the draft streetscape plan was to improve the commercial vitality of High St by delivering infrastructure improvements that:

  • creates a distinctive sense of place for local residents, visitors and businesses
  • provides a high-quality, attractive public space where people want to visit and shop, and
  • improves the attractiveness, comfort, accessibility, connectivity and safety of High St.

“Key features of the masterplan include quality pavement, street trees, garden beds, gathering nodes, furniture and public art,” Cr Raeburn said.

Five stages are outlined in the draft plan at a total cost of about $1.5M.

“The staged approach allows Council to progress works over time, but the plans also allow us to apply for funding opportunities that could see these plans come to life more quickly,” he said.
