Town Centre Renewal Plan

The TCRP is an ambitious plan that seeks to rejuvenate the town centre of Inverell. Adopted by Council in 2014, it is a strategy for enhancing an attractive town centre that people want to visit more frequently and stay for longer periods of time – allowing businesses greater opportunity. The Plan also sought to deal with the problems associated with existing Plane Trees.
