Partnerships add to Rosebery Plaza

24 August 2016

Partnership with two major businesses has resulted in additional seating at the Rosebery Plaza.

The public space was redeveloped by West Coast Council over the past two years, with MMG and TasRail approaching Council offering to cover the cost of installation of a table and covered seating at the Plaza.

“MMG Rosebery and TasRail were keen to jointly fund a commemorative project in recognition of the rare achievement of 80 years of continuous operations which was achieved in February this year. Rosebery's longevity is a testament to the thousands of people who have worked at the operation over its 80 years as well as the ongoing support of the West Coast community,” said MMG Operations Manager, Jenkins Kroon.

“With the generous support from MMG and TasRail, Council staff were able to instal the additional infrastructure without a budget allocation for this financial year, saving the community $5000,” West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers said.

The new table, particularly the covered seating, will be greatly appreciated by both locals and visitors at the heavily used Plaza, providing protection from the summer heat – and winter rain.

“Council is pleased to be able to partner with businesses who are willing to contribute back to the community,” Mayor Vickers said, “In a region such as the West Coast success and sustainability must be built around working together and this project is one example of how this vision, as highlighted in the West Coast Community Plan 2025, can be achieved.”
