Warrnambool’s City Centre Renewal now has a dedicated project office in the city’s commercial and retail heart.

The City Renewal project office at 142 Liebig Street was officially opened this week by Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston.

“The office delivers on a commitment made to city centre business operators that there would be a dedicated office at which the City Centre Project Manager and key staff would be based during the renewal works,” Cr Gaston said.

“Retailers and residents who have any questions or concerns relating to the City Centre Renewal can come directly to the staff who will be able to provide an answer.

“The office increases accessibility and openness around this $15 million project.”

Construction on Stage I of the City Centre Renewal, which includes Liebig Street from Raglan Parade to Koroit Street, will begin in February and finish in October next year.

City Centre Renewal Project Manager Ben Storey said people wanting to know more about the project were welcome to drop in to 142 Liebig Street.

“We’ll have plans and drawings on hand which help explain the where and what of the renewal,” Mr Storey said.

“We’ll also have information on the support package for traders. This includes the free parking in Parkers Car Park along with the grants available to eligible retailers and property owners within the project area to help improve shop facades and access into their buildings.”
