Shire of East Pilbara CEO Jeremy Edwards talks about the East Pilbara Town Revitalisation Program and Newman Town square.
Chief Executive Officer for the Shire of East Pilbara, Jeremy Edwards talks about the new Town Revitalisation Program which is in the Newman town square.
The Town Revitalisation Project was a total build of 40 million dollars. It consisted of 20 million dollars that were spent on new access roads coming into Newman and 20 million dollars for the Town Square Edge Redevelopment. The Redevelopment included a movie theatre, pop-up shops and 'The Edge' which is a business centre and a commercial kitchen.
The Council in the Shire of East Pilbara is quite progressive in providing this type of facility, and it is something that not many Councils have done.
Newman and the Shire of East Pilbara is a fantastic place to visit. not only is the area the gateway to the Karijini National Park but there are also magnificent waterholes and features all within 30 to 40 minutes of the Town Centre, a fantastic place to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
