Bundaberg CBD Revitalisation

Latest News

  • CBD Design Update

    The CBD Design is continuing to develop with our design consultants coordinating the complex network of services, approvals and design decisions that are required to deliver a long lasting and carefully constructed CBD.

    The CBD Design now includes Tantitha Street, undergrounding overhead electricity and a two way traffic option for Barolin Street between Quay and Bourbong Streets.

    As the design has progressed there has been a range of ways for the community and traders to get involved, presently you can view the plans under the Document Library to the right and email any comments to us at consultation@bundaberg.qld.gov.au

  • Out and About

    Council and the design team engaged with traders, land owners and community representatives just prior to Christmas for the Bourbong Street between Maryborough and Tantitha Streets in the CBD.  The storefront consultation was a great opportunity to get to know a wide variety of community members and to talk through the design as it continues to develop in response to community and trader feedback.

  • Council expands CBD scope, reduces funding commitment

    Project savings and a wider scope of works as well as certainty for traders are among the positives to flow from a Council decision to reassess timelines for the redevelopment of the Bundaberg CBD. Mayor Jack Dempsey this week told stakeholders that a wider development scope for the project coupled with the necessity to source partnership funding from State and Federal governments are compelling reasons why the redevelopment schedule is being reviewed.

  • What did you tell us?

    With over 400 people participating in some kind of engagement to date we have been working through the findings to provide a key summary that will help shape the project moving forward. Check out the forum below for a snapshot that you can feedback to us on. 

    We were delighted with community, trader and stakeholder comments at the workshops and on the street. It is very clear that you care about the CBD and are invested with us in designing and delivering a refreshed heart for the city. 

    Comments were thoughtful, many and varied and the team is considering a detailed summary of the engagement activities together with the information gathered in the Care Factor and Place Experience surveys.

  • Thank you!

    Over 400 people contributed to either a care Factor or PX Assessment survey over the last 3 weeks - this provides us with an unprecedented, data-driven foundation for the CBD revitalisation project. In addition, we estimated that we spoke with over 100 people at the trader workshops, stakeholder meeting and street pop-ups. Your input is valuable to us and we are working on how together we ensure the CBD is great for everyone in the future.
  • Thanks for the Chat!

    We are thankful to all community members who made sure their voice was heard at our recent drop-in session, trader workshops, online and face-to-face surveys held in the past week. Please continue to tell us your thoughts through your online community forum.
