Somerset Village Development Plan Implementation

Council invited public feedback on revised plans for the upgrade of the Somerset CBD in December 2015. 

The Somerset Village Development Plan was first adopted by Council in June 2014.

Following feedback from businesses and the public, Council has revisited the initial proposal.

Stage 1 of the project will be partially funded by the Federal Government in the form of Road to Recovery funding and from the State Government.

The proposed work includes upgrading the Civic Square plaza area with feature seating and windbreak walls, additional parking and tree planting in Elizabeth and Wragg Street works.

In addition to this a number of other features such as chicanes, a change of colour to the street and footpaths, additional tree plantings, the establishment of outdoor dining areas, gabion seating and entry markers will help attract people to visit Somerset.
