We have a number of exciting projects and plans happening right across our city centre that, together, are helping to transform it into a place that we can all be proud of.

We regularly ask for your opinions as we rely on our community’s input. Your contributions help ensure that Council’s decisions reflect the aspirations of everyone who lives in our city. Keep an eye out below to see what’s currently in progress, and what’s open for feedback.
