  • an ACROD bay adjacent to Pharmacy 777 and an additional ACROD bay in the Festival precinct
  • two new pedestrian crossing points in the River Precinct
  • increased public open space in the new town square including water and power outlets to support events
  • parklets for increased alfresco opportunities
  • opportunities for community input into street furniture including parklets , planter boxes and 'story telling' in the paving
  • retaining grassed areas in Reuther Park for informal recreation
