DEPUTY mayor Wendy Boglary wants to hear from residents and visitors how Wellington Point village can be improved.

Cr Boglary will hold a community consultation day on Saturday, June 3 from 10am to 2pm to hear people’s suggestions for enhancing the area.

She said she would like to have feedback from residents as well as people who live elsewhere, but visit the village.

“I want to hear how often they come, what they love about Wellington Point village and what they’d like to see improved,” she said.

The session was due to be held in May, but was postponed until June 3.

Among the issues Cr Boglary said had been raised previously were people being unaware of the location of the toilets in the village, seating and natural shade.

She would also like input on an outdoor art gallery consisting of sculptures installed at locations around the village.

“People would be able to walk around the village to see the artworks,” Cr Boglary said.

The deputy mayor said the enhancements needed to strike a balance of maintaining the village atmosphere and improving the Wellington Point streetscape.

“I love the village as it is, but it’s about polishing up the rough edges.”

Cr Boglary’s pop-up park will be located outside Foodworks in Main Street for the consultation day, which will include face painting, a free sausage sizzle and a busker.

An historical timeline of the area will also be on display to recognise the importance of retaining Wellington Point’s heritage appeal
