The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is rolling out a Statewide pilot program to promote temporary intervention projects in local government areas to improve the safety and attractiveness of our streets. The $15 million Streets as Shared Spaces Fund is a one-off grant program supporting quick response projects to support communities now and in the future with our re-emergence from COVID-19. Eurobodalla Council, like others across the State are encouraged to apply for a Streets as Shared Spaces grant for a temporary intervention project to deliver short-term and semi-permanent improvements. Have an idea? Email one of the councillors and see if you can gain their support. They may not respond to an email so be sure to give them a call and leave a message. Otherwise email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org. More INFO HERE Temporary intervention is an approach to neighbourhood building and activation, using short-term methods such as pilots, pop-ups or interim improvements that help to:
increase space for safe walking and cycling
support physical health and local business
build on the local character and improve the attractiveness of centres and public spaces through innovative and creative approaches, and
activate centres and high streets through programming to create better quality public space once COVID-19 measures are lifted.
Applications for the program will close on June 10. Successful projects will be announced within two months of submissions closing.
