Living Streets Meeting for November – Date Change

It would be helpful to hold this month's Living Streets meeting on the second Thursday of the month rather than the third one, as this will give us time to discuss and prepare submissions on the riverbank plan, which is open for public consultation until November 28th. This project has the potential to allow some new pedestrian and cycle bridge construction across the river, in addition to many other proposals, and it would be good to get plenty of input on what might be viable possibilities.

If you would like to take a look at the plans prior to our meeting, start here: This page gives you access to the plans and of course there is the opportunity to make individual submissions online on any aspects that you have an interest in.

So, as a reminder again, we will be meeting on Thursday, November 13, 7pm at 29 Claude St.






4:00PM TO 6:00PM

Come and join us in a working bee in the A.J. Seeley Gully,

Armagh Street, Hamilton.
