EARLY CONCEPT DESIGN PHASE
The Early Concept Design phase of the project ran from 25 October to 1 December 2017. During this phase, stakeholders and residents were asked to share their views on four early concept designs for the Kings Parade precinct.
The outcomes of the community consultation from this phase are available in the document Kings Parade Upgrade Project – Communique #1 available by clicking here.
Over the coming months Council’s Engineering Team will be using the consultation data to:
- Further explore the design elements that resonated with the community.
- Determine if those elements can be brought together into a single preliminary design; or if more than one design should be produced for further consideration.
- Use land survey data to ensure that those designs could be constructed to current engineering design standards, and eliminate any designs, or design elements, that cannot.
- Finalise traffic flow data analysis to determine the impacts of any preliminary design on surrounding streets and CBD traffic.
During this period, the Council will also commence a new project to investigate how the Central Business District might be made more attractive for locals and visitors alike; and how it might be transformed into a vibrant community hub. This project will include both Reibey Street and the Wharf Precinct areas.
Once this new CBD rejuvenation project has received feedback from the community, and the work is complete on the preliminary Kings Parade Upgrade design, or designs, they will be brought back to the Central Coast community for further consideration and comment. This is anticipated to take place in April 2018.

Study Circles offer an opportunity for interested residents to learn more about the project specifics and the processes used to determine the design outcomes. Participants become ambassadors for the project and proactively gather community views through their own networks to influence the planning process.
The Central Coast Council is looking for dedicated residents to join our Study Circle prior to the commencement of Phase Two in April 2018.
