Parkes Shire Council was successful in securing $945,400 from the NSW Government through the Your High Street program to revitalise the Trundle Main Street.
The funding will see elements of the recently developed masterplan come to life including improvements to pedestrian access and safety, tree planting and a new community hub to provide a gathering spot and events space to draw in the community and passing motorists.
In late 2020, Council invited members of the trundle community and users of the Trundle main street to meet with the Council project team to develop ideas and solutions designed to improve this space to best meet the future needs of the Trundle community.
The NSW Government's Your High Street program awarded 19 councils with up to $1 million to help them deliver projects that will permanently transform streetscapes into more livable, accessible and vibrant public spaces.
Works are expected to commence in 2021 and be completed by June 30 2022.
