Last LAPM review

Gold was last assessed in 2015. Back then they were called called “Local Area Traffic Management” not “Local Area Place Making”. LAPM reviews are a once in a decade opportunity to persuade Council to invest decent money in infrastructure such as better footpaths, bicycle paths, more trees, pocket parks or street closures.
