James Street Plaza: Bring this space to life

Revitalising James Street Plaza is part of City of Newcastle’s local centres program supporting our commitment to developing a vibrant, safe and active public places.

James Street Plaza: Bring this space to life

Placemaking – recent consultation 


In July 2019 we ran a series of engagement activities with the people who live, work and play in Hamilton to come up with ideas that will revitalise the local plaza to ensure we develop a master plan that meets the needs of the community and benefits all stakeholders. Our initiative follows a Council resolution in February 2018 to prepare a concept plan for the upgrade of the plaza.

To hear what the community had to say view the engagement report in the document library. 

We would like to thank the local community for sharing your ideas online and at our community placewarming idea sessions on how you think we could renew this public space. 

Project Status


Concept design/s are being created, incorporating community and stakeholder feedback. The design/s will be exhibited online for community comment and an on-site community drop-in session will be held. 

Visit James Street Plaza, Hamilton to track the project stages.
