Seats, Beats & Eats

Local business CWME Civil has now commenced on site construction of Gilgandra’s newest activation project - ‘Miller Street > Seats, Beats & Eats’.

The additions to the Community Plaza will include undercover seating and green spaces. Concepts supplied.

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 Mr Brook.

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 Committee.

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.
