In 2018 Council engaged consultants McGregor Coxall to deliver a master plan in consultation with the community that will enhance liveability of the city through integration of the creek and its associated ecology with urban design principles and the creation of useable, enjoyable and safe public spaces.
The area of the master plan follows Dumaresq Creek and includes the adjacent parkland areas east to Taylor Street and west to Albion Park opposite the Armidale Tafe.
The draft masterplan includes a number of recommendations that will significantly enhance the area and unlock the cultural, social, recreational, environmental and tourism potential of the area while addressing the environmental and hydrological impact, public safety, flooding and maintenance.
Stage 1 of the masterplan has now been funded with $3milion secured through the NSW Government's Public Spaces Legacy Program.
