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.

The project scope is shown on the site plan. Improvements will include aspects of the public domain such as 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.
