Seats, Beats & Eats
Local business CWME Civil has now commenced on site construction of Gilgandra’s newest activation project - ‘Miller Street > Seats, Beats & Eats’.
CWME Civil director, Ryan Brook says that the
team are very excited to undergo the project.
“We were really excited when we got the news! This
will be our first project under our new subsidiary,
CWME Civil, and with Gilgandra Shire Council.
“We already have workers on site commencing with
the demolition process and removal of the pavers,” said
Linking to the adjacent Mill on Miller Street and
aligning with the Gilgandra Activation Blueprint, Miller
Street > Seats, Beats & Eats seeks to transform the
Community Plaza through installation of shade, seating,
greenery, and lighting.
Ideas to enhance the community plaza stems from
consultation with the community including BIG Ideas
survey, GSC Community Survey, customer requests,
support letters from artists, local businesses and community
groups and the Economic Development
Based off this feedback, the key objectives
of the activation include:
• Improve the quality of an existing area to create a
connected activated space.
• Improve the quality of the space and activate the
Gilgandra Community Plaza with colour, vibrancy,
opportunity and energy.
• Encourage increased dwell-time in both the day
and night, promoting user comfort as people grab a meal
from nearby takeaway location and access key linkages
in the CBD.
• Provide a place for interaction, not only for enjoyment
but impromptu and casual work catchups, reinforcing
increased dwell-time and boosting economic
activity and vitality.
Miller Street > Seats, Beats & Eats is made possible with the assistance of funding from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment under the Streets as Shared Spaces Program Round Two.
