Proposed Young Street Plaza

Consultation has concluded

Feedback closed 5pm, 5 July 2019 (extended)

Council is seeking community feedback on design options for a new plaza in Young Street (between Military Road and Grosvenor Lane).

The project is a response to community feedback emphasising a need for more community/open space in the Neutral Bay Village.

A concept has been developed that proposes new landscaped areas for community use, space for outdoor dining, and improved pedestrian access around Neutral Bay Village. The concept is not a final design but shows a range of options to facilitate further community feedback on the project.

A Traffic Impact Assessment and Traffic Management Plan was undertaken for future scenarios with and without the road closure. The Traffic Impact Assessment found that key intersections on the surrounding road network would generally be unaffected by the redistribution of traffic due to the closure of Young Street, with the exception of Waters Road and Military Road which may experience increased queuing on Waters Road during peak periods.

View the design concepts, Traffic Impact Assessment and Traffic Management Plan in the document library. Hard copies are available at Stanton Library and Council's Customer Service centre during opening hours.


PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • closure of Young Street between Military Road and Grosvenor Lane (driveway and loading zone access will be retained)
  • 700m2 of high quality landscaped space for community use
  • new street trees, garden beds and public seating
  • high quality paving and materials
  • improved access for people walking and cycling to B-line bus stops, including new paths and secure bike parking
  • realignment of existing traffic signals over Military Road to provide a direct link between May Gibbs Place and Young Street
  • increased pedestrian activity in front of shops and commercial premises fronting Young Street
  • integration with planned pedestrian path and streetscape upgrades in nearby Grosvenor Lane
  • reduction of 11 car parking spaces, which will be offset by an increase of 5 spaces in Grosvenor Lane (updated)
