Seddon Street Streetscape

With the opening of the new Waihi Gold Discovery, staff raised with the Ward members the matter of completing the Seddon Street streetscape to include the area by the Gold Discovery Centre.

Council in the past has signalled that it would be keen to look at an upgrade of this area to tie in with the Gold Discovery Centre and develop a terminus for the Hauraki Rail Trail.  Staff would need to put in the upcoming Long Term Plan a small budget to allow for some conceptual plans to be prepared. A budget estimate of $20-25,000 is recommended by staff.

The members agreed that investigations be undertaken by staff to seek concept plans and costs to extend the streetscape from the roundabout to the Poppet head.
