Stage three of street beautification works in Brunswick Heads have now been completed.

The completion of stage three of the Brunswick Heads streetscape project will be celebrated on Saturday between 11am and 3pm with an official opening and unveiling of the new town visitors map at noon.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Officer Kim Rosen said the work was the result of a great community effort in partnership with traders and Byron Council staff.

"Funds for the project were gathered together and included a loan organised by council, footpath maintenance funds, donations from local businesses and community fundraising, with substantial in kind contributions made by the Chamber of Commerce, the Progress Association and BEAT," she said.

"Pedestrians, the disabled, diners, traders, locals and visitors will all reap the benefits."

Included in stage three has been the replacement of footpaths, extensions of pathways, the installation of blisters and improvements to enhance pedestrian safety.

"The whole area has been enhanced by local indigenous plants and street furniture," she said, "and there has been an overall gain of two parking spaces with two five minute spaces now closer to the medical centre and chem- ist."

The Saturday street party is being described as an up beat al fresco fiesta in Mullumbimbi St, with live music covering Latin, funk and Indonesian styles, great eating experiences and a chocolate wheel spinning out prizes donated by local traders.
