An innovative masterplan for Gunnedah’s much-loved Cultural Precinct is now available to the community to have their say.
Following an extensive community consultation process, Gunnedah Shire Council this week reviewed an exciting new blueprint for the precinct that includes Gunnedah Town Hall, the Smithurst Theatre, the Civic Theatre, the Bicentennial Creative Arts Centre, the Visitors’ Information Centre, and the empty block of land next to the Smithurst.
This is a project that is not currently funded, but on the basis of this masterplan and further community comments on the plan, we can show we have a clear way forward in seeking grants to make this a reality.
It is absolutely critical that we have our community on board so we address their needs and wishes for what is a gathering place for our Shire, so we really encourage people to take a look and have their say – whether they just want to say it’s exactly right, or they can see room for improvement.
Council urges members of the community with an interest in any of the referred policies to review the draft documents. Copies of the policies can be viewed at Council’s Administration Building, 63 Elgin Street, Gunnedah or on Council’s website.

Written submissions will be received by the undersigned until 5.00pm on the public exhibition closing date 13 February 2020.
