Mt Perry footpath upgrade Information Session 24-08-17

Aug 23, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

Following North Burnett Regional Council’s successful application for funding through the State Government’s ‘Works for Queensland’ (W4Q) program for regional councils to help stimulate growth and improve minor infrastructure across regional Queensland, Council received funding for the “Footpath main street Mt Perry” project to improve accessibility and safety.

Mayor Rachel Chambers has advised that a diagram of the proposed footpath accessibility and safety works will be placed on display at Council’s Mt Perry Customer Service Centre, and urges all affected business owners and residents to call in to the Council Chambers at Mt Perry this Thursday to discuss the proposed works.

“Interested community members are invited to attend an information session to be held at the Mt Perry Boardroom this Thursday, 24 August from 1:30pm to 4:30pm to meet with Division 5 Councillor, Cr John Bowen, and Council’s Works Engineer to view and discuss the proposed footpath option. Outside of these times, feedback is welcome through the library,” Mayor Chambers said.

It is anticipated that the proposed footpath works will commence at the end of September and be of approximately two (2) months duration.

Council appreciates that these works may result in disruption to businesses and residents alike, however, where possible, the disruption will be minimised. We trust that community members will find the completed project has improved safety and accessibility for pedestrians and be aesthetically pleasing. If you have any significant factors which you believe Council should be aware of prior to the commencement of works, please contact Council’s Engineering Department immediately. Council will continue to inform and consult with the Mt Perry community during the progress of this project.

For further information regarding this project please contact Council’s Engineering and Environmental Services staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC) or email Council.

The ‘Footpath main street Mt Perry’ project has been funded by the Queensland Government’s Works for Queensland project.
