Construction work has commenced on the first phase of the Norah Head Village masterplan.
A footpath is being built on the western side of Bungary Rd, between Victoria St and Maitland Dve, and Central Coast Council has contacted property owners regarding the design and construction of a three metre wide shared pathway on the same stretch on the eastern side of Bungary Rd, with work expected to start in April.
The Stage 2 extension of the shared pathway to Macquarie St will be completed by June, 2020.
Work on the new amenities block, and landscaping in Mazlin Reserve, opposite the Norah Head Community Hall, is expected to start in March and to be completed by June.
Other projects in Phase 1 of the masterplan include street plantings, parking improvements and kerb and guttering works on Bungary Rd, and pedestrian links between the Village Centre and Mazlin Reserve.
Concept drawings for parking improvements and pedestrian links between the village centre and Mazlin Reserve have been completed and are now open for feedback, along with the design of Mazlin Reserve upgrade.
Consultation closes on March 21, and all feedback will be used to develop a final concept design which will be provided to the community for comment.
Council formally adopted the Norah Head Village Centre Masterplan in December, 2017.
It is a long-term plan intended to be implemented over 10 to 15 years, and includes 51 projects within the eight main areas.
Key objectives of the masterplan are to strengthen the village centre and Mitchell St as a hub, safe pedestrian and cycling connections throughout the area, signage to promote key attractions and the heritage of the area, open space and streetscape improvements, traffic management and car parking.
