Shortland Local Centre


At the elected Council’s meeting of 27 November 2018 Councillors resolved to have a public domain plan prepared for Shortland Local Centre under the Local Centres Public Domain Infrastructure Renewal Program.

Improvements will include aspects of the public domain such as traffic and pedestrian safety, footpaths, lighting, trees and street furniture.

In April 2019 City of Newcastle officers met with the owners of businesses in Shortland Local Centre to discuss their issues. As part of the planning process we reached out to the broader community for their input via a community survey which was open from 15 June to 29 June 2020. To find out more about this consultation, please visit our Have Your Say page.
