WOLLONGONG City Council wants to hear the community’s thoughts on the draft streetscape and car park upgrade plan for Woonona Circle.

The plan includes an upgrade and widening of footpaths and improved pedestrian access, moving the entrance of the car park from Park Road to The Circle, and the provision of disabled parking. Tree planting, upgraded paving and furniture are also proposed in order to provide an improved amenity for the community.

The work, if it was to go ahead, would be carried out in two stages. Once the final design is created, work on the first stage would start in April 2013. The plan will be on exhibition until Friday December 14.

Community members can have their stay at an onsite kiosk on Thursday from 4-6pm. Council staff will set the kiosk up outside the East Woonona Post Office. Otherwise, people can have their say by completing an online survey on Council’s website or by emailing consultation@wollongong.nsw.gov.au. The draft plans and FAQ sheet can be downloaded from Council’s website.
