+ PORT MACQUARIE TOWN GREEN WEST
In February 2020 King & Campbell were engaged by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to prepare a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Town Green West improvement works. King & Campbell managed a number of specialist sub consultants including ecological and Aboriginal and European heritage. Works also included liaising with various government agencies and obtaining the relevant licences and permits. The improvement works are an extension to the recently constructed works undertaken on the eastern portion of Town Green. The new works have been identified as a key COVID-19 recovery project, with completion anticipated in December this year. See link below for further details.
+ INVERELL TOWN CENTRE RENEWAL
In 2014 King & Campbell prepared the Inverell Town Centre Renewal Plan. The Plan included an innovative at-grade centre median and tree planting treatment for Otho and Byron Streets, Inverell’s main streets. Otho Street was constructed in 2018 and was well received by the Inverell community. Byron Street was constructed in 2020. Citygreen, suppliers of the sub-surface tree root vault system for the project, produced a case study video of the project - see link below.
+ MARIA RIVER ROAD DETAIL SURVEY
Following the State Government's recent announcement of the upgrade of Maria River Road, King & Campbell have been engaged to undertake the detailed survey of its corridor. The section of road is approximately 24km in length and is situated, almost equally, in the Kempsey Shire Council and Port Macquarie-Hastings Council areas. The objective of the survey is to establish the relationship between the road in use and cadastral boundaries, and obtain enough topographic detail to enable the design of the future road.

+ PORT MACQUARIE OBSERVATORY APPROVAL
King & Campbell have been working closely with the Port Macquarie Astronomical Association (PMAA) in the development of plans for a new observatory and science hub in Rotary Park, adjacent to Town Beach. In March 2020 Development Approval was granted by Port Macquarie Hastings Council for the new facility, which is to replace the existing observatory building in the same location. The existing building was opened in 1965 and has provided continuous educational services since that time, including astronomical viewing and exhibitions. The new building will provide larger and modern facilities, including a new observatory dome, a multi-function display and foyer, an 85 seat auditorium and an outdoor plaza. PMAA are keen to make a start on the new building and are currently seeking grant funding opportunities.
