Public Art in Major Development

Woollahra Council aims to support and promote art, artists and cultural development in the community. We are doing this by integrating public art requirements into large scale development in Edgecliff, Double Bay and Rose Bay centres. Public art helps to create local landmarks that contribute to a sense of place, liveability and community identity.

The Woollahra Development Control Plan 2015 - Amendment 11 establishes planning objectives and controls for public art, and identifies that development with a capital improvement value of $15M or more must include public art.

To help the community understand how the new planning controls will operate, we also exhibited the Draft Woollahra Public Art Guidelines for Developers. These draft guidelines provide advice for developers on the process for incorporating high quality public art in major developments.

The public exhibition period was from Wednesday 25 September to Friday 8 November 2019 and has now closed. You can still read our exhibition documents.
