Share your feedback on our 12-month parklet trial
Parklets are kerbside parking spaces that have been repurposed into public space ‘pockets’ to provide additional seating. In response to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, parklet programs were introduced across Sydney to increase the amount of outdoor dining available.
Whilst COVID-19 restrictions are no longer in place, we are trialling the use of parklets to activate the public domain and support small businesses in the Woollahra Local Government Area. The design and siting of these parklets is managed under the Parklet Trial Program Guidelines, which exclude parklets from residential areas and requires them to be manufactured out of high quality materials.
The current trial period is for 12 months, and is subject to a limitation of 20 parklet approvals.
The trial program will be reviewed at a meeting of Council in mid-2023. Council will evaluate the effectiveness of the program and decide whether it should become a longer term offering.
To help us understand the community's response to the parklet program, we would be grateful if you can spare a few minutes to complete a short survey below before Wednesday, 1 May 2023.
