Wauchope Main Street

Consultation has concluded

Wauchope Main Street is a concept plan for High Street that aims to encourage more 'feet on the street' and to create a safer, pedestrian friendly CBD.

The plan was developed through a range of conversations with the local community led by an independent consultant in 2015 and during the development of Council plans such as:

  • Port Macquarie-Hastings Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan 2015
  • Port Macquarie-Hastings Bike Plan 2015
  • Wauchope Traffic Management Strategy 2014
  • Wauchope Framework Plan 2009

What will the plan do?

The Plan identifies ways that High Street and associated intersections can be refreshed and improved so that walking and cycling trips are convenient, pleasant and safe and the character of the town and landscape is enhanced and respected. This includes:

  • Increased pedestrian safety by relocating High Street pedestrian crossings and designing intersection improvements
  • Reversing the direction of the traffic on Oxley Lane, which will encourage the use of additional parking off High Street and improve intersection safety.
  • Increased footpath widths, addition of street seating and provision of space for outdoor dining.
  • Provision of 15 minute parking and disabled parking on High Street.
  • Street planting to create attractive, vibrant foliage displays with trees providing shade during summer and allowing sunshine in winter.
