Following on from initial consultation, Urban Design experts Sala4D are returning to Canowindra later this month to conduct a series of consultation and drop-in sessions to gauge the people of Canowindra's desires for a functional and sustainable Town Centre.

A similar meeting is also planned for Molong.

Initial consultations led to a draft issues paper for both towns, with current strengths and weaknesses, as well as a history of the towns.

Feedback was invited on these papers, and the next stage of the design process is commencing.

Urban Design is about creating places that you want to spend time in.

Canowindra residents are invited to attend the Town Centre meetings and drop-in sessions to tell Cabonne council and the consultants about the kind of Town Centre they want.

Do you want your Town Centre to change?

Do you want a place that's easy for quick visits?

Do you want a place where you linger?

Do you want a place for town events?

Who are the people that we need to cater for?

Sala4D will be using these consultations to translate your needs and desires into a design that can be built.

The sessions will take place in Molong on Monday and Tuesday the 24th and 25th of August.

The Canowindra sessions are planned for Wednesday and Thursday the 26th and 27th of August.

There will be a mix of day and night time sessions, with COVID safe plans in place for all sessions.

For more information and to register your interest or book a time to speak with the consultants, please contact Cabonne Shire Council's Communications and Marketing Coordinator, Emma Tadros, on 0419 719 632.
