Gunnedah's new Cultural Precinct Master Plan Advisory Group is ready to begin work, with all positions now filled.
Locals Alex Wharton and Tony Blake were chosen as the last two community members at Gunnedah Shire Council's recent ordinary meeting.
The advisory group will work towards a better cultural precinct by providing input into the master planning process.
Dunn and Hillam Architects have been appointed to look at creating a more cohesive precinct as part of the Cultural Precinct Master Plan and Concept Plan.
The architects will develop a concept plan and cultural heritage plan using community consultation.
Other community members in the group include Joe Kelly, Martine Moran, Shirley Urquhart, Ashley Byron, Rebecca Ryan and Margaret Amos. Councillors Murray O'Keefe, Colleen Fuller, Owen Hasler and Rob Hooke represent the council.
The council's purchase of 158 Conadilly Street - an empty block adjacent to the Smithurst Theatre on Conadilly Street - in December 2018 will provide more options for the redevelopment of the precinct.
At the time, numerous councillors said it was "very good news" as the block had been an "eyesore for many years".
Gunnedah's cultural precinct includes Gunnedah Town Hall, the Smithurst Theatre, the Civic Theatre, the Creative Arts Centre, and the Visitors Information Centre.
