Home' The Eye : November 15th 2012 Contents 12
The Eye 15.11.12
THE instructons from our August workshops
were clear and very consistent across the
workshops that we ran with businesses,
children, artsts and residents.
The biggest identfed need was for civic
gathering spaces areas to meet, look, rest
and share actvites. Groups also identfed a
need for improved presentaton a lot more
colour, plantngs, art/sculpture, shelter,
signage (entry, directory, banning poor
signage) and improved shop presentatons.
Other common requests were for more
community services and some retail
changes. Groups acknowledged the great
strengths they had with much of the existng
retail partcularly key services such as the
supermarket, post oﬃce, bank, chemist etc.
and the potental benefts in having 10,000
traﬃc movements a day along Elles Road.
The main elements to the proposed concept
plans, which are on display in the South
Alive oﬃce, are:
Martn Street sheltered seatng area,
Elles Road from Dalrymple to Janet Streets
green columns and other plantng,
signifcant work of art at the high point
of Elles Road
Grace Street sheltered seatng area,
Temporary Park South Alive has leased
the vacant sectons on Ness Street, behind
the Mall. Plans are developing but will
include large scale community garden
boxes, a stage, art works and mounds for
kids to play on. We are also working on the
idea of a half basket ball court and pop-up
Community hub the potental for a
community hub building, probably in
the medium to longer term
The next steps
The street changes have to go through
Councils approval process and, if approved,
are likely to occur over two or three fnancial
years. The next steps in terms of design are
an engineering study and drawing detailed
plans - likely to take six months.
Work on the temporary park can start
almost immediately frst step, more
The next stage with the community
hub is to do a feasibility study
which will aim to specify and
quantfy the demand in more
detail to recommend whether
it should go ahead or not.

identfed that the work should begin in Appleby.
The evenings began with dessert and coﬀee served
by Aurora College students. Then those atending
rotated around the many agencies present to
get their advice and fnd out what assistance
