Have your say on improving the safety, look and feel of Georgetown Local Centre

We previously asked the local community what was most important about Georgetown Local Centre, and what could be improved. We heard that people love the community and village atmosphere but would like it to be enhanced with improved public spaces.

With your input, we’ve developed a draft Public Domain Plan. We encourage you to view the Plan and have your say to help shape future upgrades to the Georgetown Local Centre.

What is being proposed?

The upgrades aim to:

  • Improve accessibility, safety and convenience for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Improve driver visibility and safety.
  • Make improvements to infrastructure including drainage.
  • Create more space for people by building wider footpaths and a new plaza creating an attractive destination to support the shopping precinct.
  • Improve the natural environment by providing more trees and landscaping.

These upgrades will benefit both businesses and residents – delivering a safer, more attractive place to visit, that attracts customers and presents an alternative to large shopping centres. 

The Georgetown Local Centre upgrade is part of City of Newcastle's commitment to developing vibrant, safe and active public places. For information on what we have delivered in other centres, visit our Local Centres webpage.
