GREEN LIGHT: Biggenden’s streetscape set for revamp

A GREEN light have been given to develop a concept plan for Biggenden’s $80,000 streetscape makeover.

North Burnett Regional Council will be working with the Biggenden Chamber of Commerce as the lead agencies in this project, which will bring new life to the North Burnett town’s CBD.

Brisbane architects Fulton Trotter conducted their initial site visits this week on July 29–30 to speak with councillors, shop owners, and the chamber of commerce about their preliminary ideas.

The project scope is set to include:

– Edward St from the bottle tree sculpture to the Ag-Traders

– Victoria St between Edward and George St

– George St from the post office to the Coffee Pozzee

Budget documents revealed the total budget for Biggenden’s CBD reimagining will be $80,000.

Council has improved several over main streets including Mundubbera, Mt Perry, and Monto in the past, with ideas to be developed in an initial concept plan.

After stage one is complete, the plan will then go out to the community for more in depth discussion and consultation in the coming months, according to council.

“Once the concept plan is complete, quotes can be sought to develop a budget for the project,” they said.

“Council and the chamber of commerce will then be in the best position to apply for grant funding as it comes available to undertake the project.”
