The $23million revitalisation of South Hedland has received planning approval, and earthworks for the first stage are about to commence. The development is “likely to include” (how do you get planning approval with only ‘likely to include’?) a town centre cafe strip, an entertainment area and open-air night cinema, eaves and tree-lined streets. A public consultation process resulted in a lot of requests for shade, water features, safety and activity spaces. Hope that happens…goodness knows South Hedland needs something!
