Have your say on the new concept design

In 2020, Woollahra Council proposed an upgrade to the Plumer Road Commercial Precinct that would improve amenity and increase parking for local businesses and the community. We would like to thank the community for their feedback on the proposed concept design last year.

Since then, Council has decided to take the opportunity to further improve the streetscape by increasing footpath width, with enhanced landscaping to create a sense of place and potential for outdoor dining. In addition, we listened to feedback requesting pedestrian crossings and have included two in the new design.

We invite you to comment on a new concept design for the Plumer Road commercial precinct streetscape improvements. We’d like your feedback before Wednesday 15 December 2021.

The proposed work includes:

  • Change from parallel-to-kerb parking to 90 degree angle parking on the northern side of Plumer Road (nine 90 degree angle parking spaces);
  • Three parallel parking spaces on the southern side of Plumer Road to accommodate wider footpath and enhanced landscaping with potential for outdoor dining;
  • Increased parking spaces on O’Sullivan Road (two parallel parking spaces gained);
  • Replacing the existing concrete footpath and paved banding with modern granite pavers;
  • Upgraded kerb/pram ramps for improved pedestrian accessibility;
  • Increase in bicycle hoops (five total);
  • Improved stormwater drainage;
  • Enhanced landscaping, including planting, low walls, planter boxes and benches;
  • Reconstruction of the driveway laybacks adjacent to the electrical substation and shops; and
  • Construction of two new pedestrian crossings: A raised Pedestrian crossing on Plumer Road and an at grade pedestrian crossing at O’Sullivan Road

We are seeking community feedback on the detailed concept design for the streetscape upgrade. You can upload your comments on the survey and let us know what you think of the proposal.

The community’s comments and this proposal will be submitted in a report to be considered by the Woollahra Local Traffic Committee (WLTC).
