IDEAS EXCHANGE

In April 2018, we embarked on an exciting journey of transformation – partnering with community and key stakeholders to shape the future of the Kal City Centre.

Over 1,000 locals, business owners, visitors and investors told us what was needed to bring life back into the city centre’s main streets and public spaces and return them to a thriving heart of economic, cultural and physical activity.

In August 2018, we translated your ideas into a vision for the future, and captured them in a place plan setting out the overall City Centre philosophy and precincts.

In January 2019, we determined which four precincts should receive priority attention with the available $16 million budget, and in September 2019, we released a tender to the marketplace for the detailed design of those precincts.

We are now refining our plans into working drawings, specifications and procurement plans with a view to starting construction by January 2021.
