Council seek community feedback on how to make Moruya more pedestrian friendly

Council say "Changes are afoot to make Moruya more walkable. We've had some great suggestions already and we want yours too!

Council are hosting another pop-up this Thursday 8am to 12pm outside the Moruya Health Food Cafe. You will be able to view the plans, chat with staff, councillors and the Mayor, Mat Hatcher.

During the week Council staff will be going door-to-door week, talking with business owners. While the Moruya Chamber members have discussed the plans it was pointed out to Council that only a handful of local Moruya businesses are actually members of the chamber and many of the businesses are on leased premises with property owners unaware of the changes that will affect street front parking and pedestrian traffic flow.

The community is invited to share their thoughts at until 4.30pm this Friday - you'll find more info and the plans under 'Public Exhibition'.


Raised pedestrian crossings in Church Street and Queen Street (safer crossings and extra spots for outdoor eating and new gardens)

Reduced speed limit to 30km/hr (plenty of support for this at the pop-up, saying it will bring more 'village' vibes)

Some loss of on-street parking to install the crossings (initially 23 spots, down to 16 and following last week's pop-up and a suggestion to shift the bike parking area, they were down to 13. There's well over 1,000 car parking spaces in Moruya).

The NSW Government is paying for the pedestrian improvements by way of a $280,000 grant.


NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
