Stage two of the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade deferred

The City of Victor Harbor has deferred stage two of the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade.

Council considered the matter at a special meeting held on Monday, 20 March 2017 and decided it would not pursue construction works for stage two of the upgrade at this time.

“The Council has put stage two of the Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade on hold with a view to reassess the programming and go out to tender again in the 2017/18 financial year,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp.

The report presented to Council discussed the results of consultation with traders, and summarised a tender process for the delivery of stage two works that commenced in January.

Some Mainstreet Traders had expressed concerns to Council about the impact two successive seasons of works may have on their businesses. Furthermore, Council was not satisfied that the tender process had yielded the required outcomes in terms of key selection criteria.

Mayor Philp said the upgrade is still a priority project for the Council.

“Our Mainstreet Precinct is often referred to as the heart of Victor Harbor. It is important to our community, with strong messages coming through in various consultation exercises over the years that it is well overdue for a makeover.”

“I want to assure our community that Council remains committed to delivering this significant infrastructure project.”

Council secured 50% grant funding through the State Government’s Place for People grant program to deliver stage two and has been advised by the funding body that deferring works to 2017/18 will not impact this funding arrangement.

Stage two of the Mainstreet Precinct Upgrade links to stage one, extending along Ocean Street from each side of the newly upgraded intersection to the end of the pedestrian crossing points.
