A concept plan (at links below) for the redevelopment of the Echuca War Memorial and surrounding public space is now open for community comment.
Key components of the concept plan include:
War memorials – retaining the cenotaph in the current location and relocating the Boer War monument
Monument walls – demolishing the brick monument walls and rocks, build new walls along the walkway to display names and plaques
Pathways – realigning and widening pathways around the cenotaph to improve access
The redevelopment of the war memorial is a partnership project between council and the Echuca RSL Sub-branch, with council providing support through planning, building, grant submissions and project management.
Echuca RSL Sub-branch will shortly start a fundraising campaign to secure the public funding to support matching funds to support grant applications.
