Across two big days last week, Canowindra residents were given the opportunity to speak with urban design experts Sala4D and King+Campbell to have their say about what they would like to see in the town centre.
The consultations were designed to continue the conversation on from initial meetings where the history, strengths and weaknesses of the town centre was pulled together to form issues papers on Canowindra.
There were a combination of day time drop in sessions, as well as evening sessions held in Canowindra, with a strong turnout of local residents for the event.
Urban design is about creating functional and long-lasting spaces that residents of Cabonne and visitors to the region will want to spend time in.
At the Town Centre meetings and drop-in sessions participants had the opportunity to tell the designers about the kind of Town Centre they wanted.
“It is great to see so many interested groups getting to have their say at events like these,” Mayor Kevin Beatty said, having attended the evening session in Canowindra.
“Residents of Canowindra should be proud of their attendance and ideas,” continued Mr Beatty.
As with the previous issues paper, the information provided to the consultants will be collated and be available for public exhibition and comment in the coming months. These consultations are a great opportunity to translate residents needs and desires into a design that can be built for the future.
