Works have started to upgrade Beaumaris Concourse streetscape.
The upgrades follow community consultation with local residents and traders on draft Masterplan before it was adopted by Council at the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 23 May 2017.
Whilst there will be some disruption, the end product will be a more attractive, accessible precinct for all to enjoy.
It’s business as usual during construction, so please continue to support your local traders during this time.
The upgrade will help to strengthen the Concourse’s village character, enhance its leafy streetscape and strengthen its role as a vibrant retail and community centre.
Overall improvements include additional tree and garden bed planting, seating, street furniture and new, level pavements throughout the Concourse.
We anticipate that construction will take approximately six months to complete, weather permitting.
This page will be regularly updated as the works progress. We will use a combination of signage in the Councourse, printed updates, website project information, email updates and social media to let you know what is happening.

Council sought to improve its understanding of what shoppers and traders like about the precinct, the types of improvements they would like to see and gain a better understanding of their preferred look and feel for the centre.
This feedback was received during two phases of community engagement in 2017 and the consultation for the detailed design in 2018.
Information from previous consultations and decisions regarding Beaumaris Concourse Masterplan can be viewed here.
- Replacement of the brick paving with a smoother, safer surface
- A new village square in the east concourse
- More planting and new seating areas
- Safety improvements to road surface and traffic flow through the central car park
- Retaining the natural, green character of Concourse Green
The Concourse will be open for normal trading during the streetscape works. Pedestrian barriers will be used to provide safe access for shoppers while works are conducted.
request that you observe any signage to ensure your safety and the safety of workers while construction is underway.
We will regularly update the page with any changes to access and parking.
This indicative staging plan shows how the contractor will be approaching the scheduled works within Beaumaris Concourse. We will provide updates on the start times as we progress through the Concourse
