Consultation and Next Steps
The Woy Woy community was invited to provide feedback from 28 October to 2 December 2019 as part of Council's engagement event - Lets Talk Woy Woy.
Lets Talk Woy Woy has provided Council with a wealth of information about Woy Woy Town Centre and the community’s future aspirations. This feedback is now being used to inform the Woy Woy Town Centre Strategy.
Council has appointed traffic consultants to explore concerns and suggestions raised by the local community and businesses to provide for improved traffic movement and connections within the centre. An economic consultant has also been engaged to suggest strategies to enhance economic viability,business growth and vibrancy within the town centre.
The recommendations of these studies will be used to identify options and opportunities for improvement within the town centre. The community will have the opportunity to get involved and provide feedback once these have been further developed.
