Kyogle Public Realm and Streetscape Revitalisation

Kyogle Council is seeking comment and feedback from the community in connection with draft landscaping proposals for the Kyogle town centre.  Following the adoption of an Open Space Design Guide in 2020, Council has recommissioned ROSS Planning to prepare a concept plan for the landscaping, traffic management and enhanced activation of the Kyogle CBD (Central Business District).  This plan is designed to complement other town planning initiatives in setting the foundations for the future development of the CBD.  The draft plans include the following:

  • Comprehensive landscaping proposals for the town centre, including works to create a new civic ‘plaza’ focused on Stratheden Street.
  • Revised parking, access and traffic management arrangements – including the introduction of a 40kph zone throughout the town centre.
  • Opportunities for new landscaped outdoor dining/rest spaces, street furniture and other features.
  • Proposals to introduce new lighting and public art into the town centre – including a ‘Laneway Strategy’ to better activate Roxy Lane and Crockford Lane.

The draft concept plans and drawings are contained within a wider report, which sets out the rationale for the proposed works.  To view the plans/report please click here.

To make a submission or request a discussion with a council officer, please send your comments/request to council@kyogle.nsw.gov.au by Friday 28 May 2021, under the heading ‘Kyogle Public Realm and Streetscape Revitalisation’.  Alternatively, you can request a call back by contacting Council on (02) 6632 1611.  All comments will be considered prior to the adoption of final plans.

DEVELOPMENT OF FLOOD STUDIES FOR BONALBO, URBENVILLE, AND WOODENBONG

Kyogle Council and Tenterfield Shire Council have engaged engineering consultant BG&E Engineering to develop flood studies for Bonalbo, Urbenville, and Woodenbong. The studies are being undertaken with financial and technical assistance from both Councils and Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) through the NSW Government’s Floodplain Management Program.

The Flood Studies will help Council understand the likely flooding scenarios for each village area including flooding from creeks and runoff from local catchments.

Council has sought input from the community about flooding in the area, including experiences, photos and observations of flooding.  Surveys were posted to residents in the area and the returned surveys have been forwarded to consultants BG&E Engineering.
