Share R Streets


The Streets as Shared Spaces project – currently underway in Crookwell, Taralga and Laggan.

Council has been awarded grants for the NSW Government Streets and Shared Spaces program. We have a variety of exciting things happening in Crookwell, Laggan and Taralga.

The objectives of this programme are to support councils and communities during COVID-19 and to test and pilot new and innovative ideas for streets as safe, shared public spaces. In Crookwell, we are aiming to:

  • Beautify the street
  • Support physical activity
  • Support community connectedness and social cohesion
  • Activate the main street
  • Provide quality amenity space
  • Improve road safety
  • Improve mental health and community resilience
  • Enhance urban design
  • Test and build the case for more permanent changes
  • Support jobs and boost business confidence

These are temporary, quick response measures and strategic pilots to test for longer term change. Further information can be found at this link:
