Supported by the NSW Government Stronger Communities Fund – Major Projects Program (SCFMPP) Snowy Monaro Regional Council is looking forward to be working with the local community to deliver improvements to the Delegate Streetscape.

A public meeting held in May hosted by the volunteers at the Delegate RTCT Centre proved to be a valuable opportunity for council staff to connect with local residents and capture preferences and ideas relating to the upcoming streetscape project.

Being on the southernmost fringe of the region, the historic village of Delegate is nestled among some of the finest grazing land in the state and surrounded by areas of natural beauty and wonders like the Errinundra, Kosciusko National Parks and McKillops Bridge along with The Early Settlers Hut, believed to be the first European dwelling on the Monaro which is testament to Delegate's proud history.

Taking into consideration the townships historical significance, the streetscape project will continue to maintain its current themes to draw in visitors with a proposed suite of additional street trees, custom tree guards, historic signage as well as replicating the unique timber fences.

Understory mass plantings in the new garden beds and blisters with specially selected plants will assist the local population of the endangered Scarlet Robins which will also add colour and life to the main street whilst providing a sustainable environmental habitat.

One of the main highlights in the designs is a proposed new plaza to be located in front of The School of Arts. This area is to have new gardens lined with sandstone blocks, fences, trees and custom guards as well as provisions for a monument for the “Men from Snowy River”. A great new location for public meetings and events making it a wonderful addition to the overall package.

Moving down Bombala Street, an opportunity has been identified to improve long vehicle parking along Memorial Park (taking into consideration and respect for the Memorial Gates) as to with Campbell Street in front of the newly refurbished facilities with defined edging and improved drainage. All to encourage visitors to stop and have a break and enjoy the hospitality and services of Delegate.

Not shown on the designs is an additional program of works planned to address areas of poor drainage as well as resurfacing areas of damaged pavement and parking areas. All to boost the townships aesthetics and reputation as a “must do” stopover on the way along the Bonang Highway for both motorcyclists and motorist alike.

The draft whole of concept designs and montages that can be downloaded from the document library on the right of screen are now presented for your feedback.

We invite you to review the concept designs and encourage you to complete the survey below to provide valuable feedback that will assist the council with the development of concept designs.

In addition, there are key dates, project contact people and related projects. Once construction commences there will also be progress photos and regular project updates which are all there to ensure you stay informed and engaged.

Snowy Monaro Regional Council is expecting the Delegate streetscape project completed by December 2018.

Please submit your feedback by COB Wednesday 25 July 2018.
