MACQUARIE RIVER CBD MASTER PLAN OPTIONS – HAVE YOUR SAY
Two concept options are now on public exhibition for comment after community consultation last year as part of developing the Macquarie River CBD Master Plan.
Engagement and consultation with the community and stakeholders by Dubbo Regional Council is helping guide proposals for beautification and further activation of the Macquarie River corridor (eastern side) between LH Ford Bridge and Emile Seriser Bridge under a new master plan.
Council wants to create greater access for the public to the Macquarie River and significantly enhance the existing event precinct that will have the ability to attract large community and commercial events, driving economic activity for the CBD with the final master plan also providing strong, expansive environmental benefits through rehabilitation and restorative planting.
An important consideration in the development of concept plans has been the capacity of a new event precinct to withstand floods.
The community is now invited to vote on The Wandering Stage and The Dubbo Borough concepts.
Public comment is open until 9 March and residents are invited to nominate their choice through our special Community Feedback online form. A report will be presented to Council in April.

SCULPTURAL ELEMENT FEEDBACK
As part of redevelopment of the Macquarie River CBD Precinct, Council is proposing to incorporate strong sculptural elements along the Macquarie River and in Macquarie Street. These structural elements will complement existing plantings and substitute trees where planting is not possible. These elements will enhance shading and provide opportunities for increased feature and security lighting in the event precinct. Share your thoughts with us on these element concepts
