Shoalhaven City Council will shortly commence works to revitalise the streetscape along Jacobs drive, Sussex Inlet.

Mayor Amanda Findley said the $875,000 project was long overdue and the village had not seen improvements since the early 1980’s.

“I am delighted that this project is underway as the Sussex Inlet street scaping project is a key priority for this village,” Cl Findley said.

“Designs for the street scaping project were developed in conjunction with the residents over a period of months in 2017 and it’s wonderful to see work underway.”

“The Sussex Inlet Community Forum and Business Chamber have been a significant driving force during the consultation period and deserve congratulations for working closely with Council staff in finding the right solution.”

“The street scaping works will see new trees, new benches and new bins installed along Jacobs Drive.”

“The revitalisation of the main street will see many long term benefits for both business owners and the community who who visit this vibrant community precinct.

“Traffic and pedestrians will be affected from approximately 159 Jacobs Drive to 209 Jacobs Drive, near the foreshore.”

Council and the contractor will do their best to minimise inconvenience to the community during construction and appreciate the community’s patience during this time.Work will officially commence on Monday 19th February and are set to be completed by te end of June, weather permitting.
