  1. I am so pleased to see Centenary Place is correctly titled. For far too long it has been referenced by many who do not seem to know that Centenary Park is not how it was originally titled. I brought this to the notice of council via Vicki Howard in 2023 and council agreed to correctly show it in its assets register and maps. I should have brought this to the attention of NFDHS. My apologies.
