Wauchope Main Street UPGRADE (please scroll down for updates)

Wauchope Main Street is a concept plan for High Street that aims to encourage more 'feet on the street' and to create a safer, pedestrian friendly CBD. The Wauchope Chamber has long supported improvements to the town centre and with the announcement of RMS funding and the appointment of a contractor, works have finally begun. 

The roll out of the works will impact business operating in the CBD and we as a Chamber aim to share information to assist in keeping business up and running while these works are taking place.

We are here to listen to business and welcome feedback from business on how they are managing. Please send us an email at wauchopechamber@gmail.com
