…but it will get minor improvements
Tweed Street in Brunswick Heads will receive some minor improvements after councillors voted last Thursday to proceed with projects in the short term
This includes ‘pocket parks and landscaping utilising existing budgets where available and possible funding sources.’
The motion, by Mayor Richardson will also put the Tweed Street masterplan on hold ‘until the Brunswick Heads Masterplan and associated Access and Movement Strategy have been developed.’ Crs Hackett, Spooner and Hunter voted against the motion. During morning public access, Brunswick Heads Progress Association vice-president Sean O’Meara supported putting the plan on hold until an overall plan was enacted.
He said the suggestion to move ahead with a Tweed Street Masterplan was ‘flawed’ as it was based on 2004 traffic studies.
Kim Rosen spoke for kicking off the plan, saying it would transform the main street. ‘The masterplan was approved in 2010 and progress has been painstakingly slow,’ she said.
