Fraser/Dunlop shop upgrades

Project description

Fraser and Dunlop were identified as local shopping centres in need of improvements with funding provided in the 2019-20 ACT Budget to help revitalise and improve access in and around the centres while also encouraging people to shop locally.

The upgrades at the Fraser shops follows previous consultation with representatives to identify what was important for a future public space upgrade at this local centre.

Improvements to be delivered at Fraser include:

  • landscaping, including new retaining walls around existing garden bed
  • improving key pathways and existing stairs to make these safer and more accessible
  • improving public amenity by installing outdoor furniture in the existing courtyard.

Dunlop will receive some minor amenity improvements including a public noticeboard to help residents stay informed as well as new shade sails over the playground in the open space behind the shops to make it more family-friendly and attractive to use throughout the year.

Funding Value: $800,000



Expected start date: Early 2020

Expected completion date: Mid 2020
