A DIVERSE section of Warrnambool’s community has helped the process of designing plans to reshape Liebig Street.
Warrnambool City Council city centre renewal manager Tanya Egan said about 600 contributions had come through the Liebig Streetscape Plan’s launch, community workshops, a survey through The Standard, Ace Radio support, a trader function and the chance to comment via www.yoursaywarrnambool.com.au
“The renewal of the city centre is the council’s number one priority and the redesign of Liebig Street between Koroit Street and Raglan Parade is a key component of the renewal,” Ms Egan said.
“So to have a large number of people contributing to and supporting the project was fantastic.”
A pop-up shop in Liebig Street operated by the city centre renewal team provided the community with another means to learn about the Liebig Streetscape Plan and provide feedback.
Initial concept plans, drawn up by Outlines Landscape Architecture and based on community suggestions, can still be viewed at www.cbd.warrnambool.vic.gov.au, Ms Egan said.
“The feedback we have had so far on the initial concepts and direction has been overwhelmingly positive.
“The next step is to put the concepts before the Victorian Design Review Panel which operates within the Office of the Victorian Government Architect.
“Following the review process more detailed designs will be drawn up and released for additional public comment.
