Activation of the Armidale Mall and CBD
As part of our overall growth strategy for the region, and focus on the economy and tourism, Council is looking at all opportunities to activate the Armidale CBD area. Council has been working with a developer on a contribution of $50,000, in lieu of providing five of the car parking spaces required for the application, to direct the funds to the master planning and design of improvements for the East Mall, Beardy Street.
Aboriginal and Access Advisory Committees formally recognised
Council approved the formalising of both the Aboriginal Advisory Committee and the Access Advisory Committees, as official advisory committees of Council. Councillor representatives to the committees were also formalised, with Crs O’Brien and Widders appointed to the Aboriginal Advisory Committee and Crs O’Brien, McMichael and Widders appointed to the Access Advisory Committee. These key advisory committees, align with pillars, values and goals of Advancing our Region Community Plan 2022 – 2032.
Guyra to have two leash-free areas
Guyra will soon have two leash-free areas for pet owners to exercise their animals in an open environment. While there has been an informal area, the establishment of the two new official areas, will be welcome news for Guyra residents, with over 60 per cent of households having at least one dog. Leash-free areas are important to give dogs the chance to socialise with other dogs and therefore reduce problems such as barking and other nuisance behaviour. The two proposed leash-free areas will be placed on public exhibition and then a further report presented to Council for consideration with any submissions received.
