Milestone Met In Priors Creek Development

The development of the Priors Creek area in Atherton has reached another significant milestone with the endorsement of the preliminary design at last week’s ordinary Council meeting.

‘I’m really proud of the progress we’re making on this project, and look forward to seeing the development take shape over the coming months and years,’ said Mayor Rod Marti.

‘This stage of the process refines and defines the design elements, and means we can now move onto the next step of working and construction drawings.

‘We have committed $8.5M to deliver stage one (between Vernon and Jack streets) and are seeking funding from state and federal governments for additional stages.

‘Construction will commence later this year and it won’t be long before Atherton and the broader Tablelands community will be seeing the benefits of the urban plaza, 1000-person amphitheatre, nature-based playground and shared paths.

‘We’ll also be seeking expressions of interest for the public art and freehold lots in the coming weeks,’ said Mayor Marti.
