Double Bay to Rose Bay Cycleway and Rose Bay Promenade (DA)

View along Rose Bay promenade

Woollahra Council has a plan to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians along New South Head Road.

We are proposing to install a 2.4km cycleway on New South Head Road, between William Street, Double Bay and Norwich Road, Rose Bay.

The preferred design, which was endorsed by Council on 15 October 2018, reflects community feedback, particularly the aspiration for separate spaces for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles along the Promenade. This design improves safety and enjoyment for all users.

The preferred design includes a:

  • shared path along the harbour-side footpath on New South Head Road between William Street, Double Bay and Regatta Restaurant/Rose Bay Marina
  • separated bidirectional cycleway and pedestrian path along the Rose Bay Promenade
  • shared path along the harbour-side footpath of New South Head Road, adjacent to Lyne Park
  • shared path on the southern side of New South Head Road between Kent Road and Norwich Road, Rose Bay.

The section of the cycleway along the Rose Bay Promenade requires development approval (DA) because it is listed on the State Heritage Register. The DA is considered 'integrated development' and will be referred to the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage for assessment. The other sections of the cycleway that do not affect the Rose Bay Promenade do not need development consent under State infrastructure legislation.

We invite our community to give feedback from 15 May 2019 to 13 June 2019.

You are welcome to:

All submissions relating to the Rose Bay Promenade section of the cycleway will be considered as part of the development application and included in the final report.

Determination

The DA will be determined by the independent Woollahra Local Planning Panel.
