BACKGROUND

Young Street in Neutral Bay, between Military Road and Grosvenor Lane, has been temporarily closed since Monday 2 November 2020 to trial a new plaza and road closure (click here for detour map). North Sydney Council has less open space per person than every other northern Sydney council. This is an opportunity to increase public areas that the community can use.

Young Street Trial plaza is now open and will be in place for three months until March 2021 we invite you to have your say on whether you would like to see it become permanent. During initial consultation about the road closure and plaza aspects, the community had mixed views on whether they wanted it to happen. Council agreed to trial the closure to give the community an opportunity to see how it would work in practice before making a final decision.

The temporary plaza is built out of hired fixtures and elements that can be reused elsewhere.

The works are fully funded by Transport for NSW as part of the funding deed with Council for the streetscape upgrade works that complement the Northern Beaches B-Line Bus Service.

The community could provide feedback about the trial plaza or the road closure/traffic.
