Feedback sought for Bombala’s Therry St development

Snowy Monaro residents are being encouraged to provide feedback on the concept design for the Therry Street development in Bombala, a project that will be delivered through the Stronger Communities Fund Major Projects Program (SCFMPP).

The area will undergo a significant upgrade with the design set to create a functional 'green corridor' along the Bombala River foreshore. This will complement the natural environment, providing a key link with the Bombala CBD.

Community feedback is open and will close at 4.30pm on Friday 27 April, 2018. Please visit to view the concept design and to submit your feedback, link below.

The development will provide a unique space in Bombala, striking the perfect balance between functional needs (long vehicle parking, car parking) and a recreational space that will be known as Platypus Place. Locals and visitors will be able sit and relax whilst taking in the scenic surrounds.

“This development will give the Bombala township a functional area, as well as a
unique community space,” Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor, John Rooney,

“The space will be used for many community events and activities. I encourage locals to view the concept design and provide their feedback on the Therry St development. You can have your say, and I hope as many locals as possible do so.

“I look forward to the progress of this Major Project.”

The integration of the platypus viewing platform into this design is underway, and will be finalised in the coming weeks.
