National Broadband Network (NBN) contractor, Visionstream, is undertaking final restoration works on the southern side of The Boulevarde, Toronto, this week. The restoration works started on Monday and are expected to continue for two weeks. The works follow the installation of NBN infrastructure. To minimise disruption to shops and restaurants, the works will be completed between 5.30pm and 5am, a spokesperson for Lake Macquarie City Council said.
More medium density and infill housing needed
LAKE Macquarie City Council has released its draft Lake Macquarie Housing Strategy. The draft acknowledges the need for more infill and medium-density development across the city. Council on Monday approved the exhibition of the draft strategy for 28 days. The strategy presents several priorities to guide planning for housing over the next 15 to 20 years. Mayor Kay Fraser said the city needed more homes and the draft ensured a consistent approach to the design and delivery of quality housing.
