Work will soon begin on creating a vision for an ambitious civic and cultural precinct in the Bunbury CBD that is aimed at increasing the city’s social and economic vibrancy.
Bollig Design Group was on Tuesday awarded the $122,100 contract by Bunbury City Council to provide a business assessment and concept design of the precinct, which centres around the Wittenoom Street car park.
Key goals of the City of Bunbury project are activating community spaces, providing pedestrian-friendly linkages and creating long-term parking solutions while encouraging and developing new business.
The precinct would capture the area containing the council administration building, Bunbury Regional Art Galleries and Wittenoom Street car park (South’s car park).
Three discreet projects make up the precinct plan - a Wittenoom Street pedestrian connection, creation of a “Gallery Square” public open space, plus the construction of a multi-level car park.
