WEDNESDAY'S council meeting has a full agenda, including discussion on stage two of Littleton Gardens as well as the State Government handover of Bega’s main streets.
The Bega Valley Shire Council (BVSC) will discuss the handover of Carp St, Gipps St and Newton Rd, which were classified as a section of the Princes Hwy, until the bypass was built.
Council staff have recommended to accept the handover from the Roads and Maritime Services, which also comes with an offer of around $1.3million to carry out repair work.
Gipps St and Newton Rd are in particularly poor condition and proposed rehabilitation will take place in the 2014/15 council works program.
Meanwhile, the next stages of the Littleton Gardens master plan are said to proceed when funding is available, as only the works adjacent to the new Bega Town Hall and Zingel Place can currently proceed.
The reinstallation of the Littleton-Bega plaques in Littleton Gardens will be undertaken in the next stages of the master plan, to be completed prior to the next Littleton delegation visit in early 2016.
In the meantime, staff have recommended the council approve demolition and disposal of the BVSC-owned cottage on Gipps St to increase the quantity of car parking spaces available in Bega's CBD.
Construction of the Bega Civic Centre is planned to be complete by Easter 2015, with an opening yet to be confirmed.
The council will also discuss an application to modify the council-owned quarry on Ridge Rd, Coolagolite, which seeks to increase volume of extracted material from 10,000m3 to 17,000m3, to extend the crushing days from 20 to 40, as well as initiate new rehabilitation and development plans.
Also at Wednesday’s meeting, it will be recommended council endorse the BVSC Climate Change Strategy 2014 to improve resource efficiency and engage the community in projects aimed to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
The meeting starts at 2pm Wednesday in BVSC's Zingel Place chambers.
