    How do I get involved?

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

    What happens next?

    Community feedback will be reviewed. A report, together with the community’s comments and this proposal, will be considered by the Woollahra Local Traffic Committee (WLTC) at its meeting on Tuesday 2 June 2020. The WLTC’s recommendation will then be presented to the following Finance, Community and Services Committee for Council’s determination. .

    When is the work planned?

    Subject to outcome of this community engagement and traffic committee, these works are expected to be completed in the 2020/2021 Financial Year. Businesses and residents will be notified before any work starts.

    Council will work with businesses to maintain access for customers during construction.
