Find a way to unify the various shopping hubs in Kingston. Right now there are 6 - Kingston Town, the complex around Big W, two in John Street, the Coles one and the one down the bottom where Shiploads is.

Create a village feel with more cafes and terrasses, car free zones, walking and cycling area. A good swimming pool for adults and children. Enhance the potential of the beaches as community area with events etc.
