About

About: 

As Council plans the maintenance schedule for the Inverleigh Works Plan, we ask all residents to have their say on the program.

How you can be involved

How You Can Be Involved: 

Inverleigh residents can have their say on the look and feel of bollards, street furniture and alert Council as to the location of potholes, this is in direct response to the feedback Council received throughout February and March when the Inverleigh community identified a number of key areas were identified as requiring maintenance and improvement. They were:

  • Fix road surfaces
  • Improve parking
  • Plant and protect trees
  • Better drainage
  • Addition of street furniture

You can provide feedback on your preferred bollards, street furniture and identify pot holes through our online survey.

Residents should note:

Improve parking

As part of the Draft Inverleigh Streetscape Masterplan consultation, Council made a commitment at its Ordinary Meeting in February to retain two – way traffic in the downtown service roads. With this traffic flow locked in, that current configuration does not allow any opportunity to increase parking. However Council will formalise the existing parking with new line- marking.

Plant and protect trees

During the community consultation, several residents expressed a desire for more trees in Inverleigh. With the confirmation of two – way traffic in the service roads and the existing parking configuration, new trees will be planted in the area known as Inverleigh River Park, creating a natural barrier  between the street and the new Pick My Project playground. A community planting day will be scheduled to celebrate the new playground, a project that was driven by local families of Inverleigh.

To protect the long-term health and root systems of the street trees, Council will install bollards in down town Inverleigh.

Better drainage

To deliver significant improvement to drainage in the Inverleigh Streetscape would require structural infrastructure such as kerb and challenging. During the community consultation in March, survey respondents clearly started they did not want major infrastructure changes in downtown Inverleigh. Within the current annual road and drainage maintenance program budget, Council will complete a routine clean out of the drains in downtown Inverleigh in 2019.

All feedback received by Friday 11 October 2019, will inform the works program with the resultas to be published in the November issue of Leigh News.
