Filed under Community, Council, Event & Venue, News ~ by Press on  15 Nov 2019

Few neighbourhoods in Newcastle are as storied and distinct as Carrington.

Long defined by Newcastle Harbour and influenced by the harsh prosperity of a working port, Carrington is now one of Newcastle’s most desirable city neighbourhoods.

Despite significant economic and urban transformation, the suburb retains its unique personality and generous open spaces.

Council wants community feedback during the public exhibition of the Carrington Greenspace Masterplan.

Today is a community drop in session by City of Newcastle at Carrington Community Centre (Saturday 16 November) between 10.30am-12.30pm for residents to view the plan and offer feedback.

City of Newcastle Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes wants people who live and work in Carrington to engage with the community consultation session to ensure their valuable feedback is received.

This plan lays out the framework for improvement opportunities in relation to Carrington’s greenspaces, and while works identified will need a collaborative funding approach, having a plan that is built upon the needs and priorities of the community will assist in securing funding to deliver specific initiatives in the future.

After early community consultation, the addition of large shade trees in parks, more green cover on street verges and improved lighting along the foreshore are some of the features Carrington residents would like incorporated into the suburb.

Not only are we hoping to improve the amenity and livability of the suburb by increasing green spaces we can create a cooler, more comfortable town centre in the warmer months.”

This masterplan sets the future direction for Carrington Greenspaces, providing innovative and active spaces for all members of the community to enjoy.

The community consultation process runs until 22 December.
