Public Exhibition of Draft CBD Revitalisation Plan

A “pop up” Revitalise Lithgow shopfront will be part of the public exhibition process for the draft Lithgow CBD Revitalisation Action Plan in early 2016.

The process to revitalise Lithgow’s CBD has hit the fast forward button following the recent announcement that Lithgow City Council was successful in securing grant funding for a $2.899m start up project for public domain improvements along Main St. With the projects initial community engagement processes helping to frame the development of concept plans the time is now right to seek further inputs into the design process.

“This is a once in generational opportunity with funding now in place to make Lithgow’s town centre even more attractive and functional for businesses, residents and visitors.  I urge everyone to visit the Revitalise Lithgow shopfront space Council will be creating in Main St and make their own contribution to the revitalisation process.” said Mayor Maree Statham.

The Revitalise Lithgow shopfront will be located at 72 Main St, midway between Cook St Plaza and the Eskbank St intersection with Main St.  The space will be open between 10 am and 3 pm Tuesday to Friday for a two week period between 26 January and 5 February 2016. The space has been generously made available to Council and the community by Richardson and Wrench Lithgow.

“Christine and I are pleased to be able to make this contribution to the revitalisation of the Lithgow town centre.  Making sure the plans reflect the aspirations of the Lithgow community will be an important part of the process and it’s great that the shop space will be used for people to connect with Council during such an important project.” said Richardson and Wrench Lithgow Principal and Licensee Graham Hodson.

Further information will be made available in January 2016 about the public exhibition process for the draft Lithgow CBD Revitalisation Action Plan via media releases, posts on Facebook at www.facebook.com/revitaliseLithgow
