Recommended Upgrades to Fitzroy Street Plaza will be put to Council Tomorrow Night

A report will be put forward to Council at tomorrow night’s meeting outlining upgrades to Fitzroy Street Plaza proposed by Tamworth Regional Council and Tamworth City Centre Working Group.

The report suggests that planting mature shaded trees, the installation of living umbrellas with seating underneath, the placement of a ribbon seat and the installation of tactile hazard markers would be efficient, short term solutions for the multipurpose space.

A longer-term recommendation for Council is for catenary lighting to be strung across the space to create a night time lighting feature.

Director of Planning and Compliance at Tamworth Regional Council Brent McAlister says every great city has a heart.

“This space is in the heart of Tamworth and we want to ensure that people love to come to it to meet, greet, eat, relax, be entertained and to celebrate.” Mr McAlister said.

“The feedback we have had is that in order for this to happen we need to put in place plenty of shade and comfortable seating.”

The total estimated cost of the recommended plans to finish Fitzroy Plaza is $816,885.

The report recommending the finishing touches to Fitzroy Plaza be endorsed, will be presented to Council at an Ordinary Meeting on Tuesday 26 March.
