Watt Park - Stairway Upgrade Options

Submissions close midnight Sunday 11 March.

Lavender Bay Parklands are a unique foreshore asset highly valued and supported by local residents. A composite of heritage parklands with spectacular harbour views, mature tree plantings, and access to an active foreshore area; the area is visited and appreciated by residents, workers and other visitors. Located in the Western corner of the Parkland, Watt Park is characterised by a number of mature trees, sandstone rock escarpment and children’s playground.

In 2007 North Sydney Council undertook a significant community consultation in preparation for the Lavender Bay Parklands Masterplan. Since that time the Council has allocated funding for a staged implementation of that Masterplan and to date the following works have been completed:

  • Upgrade of Clark Park landscape in September 2008
  • Lighting of Lavender Bay Foreshore in August 2012
  • An upgrade of Bob Gordon Reserve in 2014
  • The amenity block refurbished in 2015
  • Quibaree Park landscape improvements in 2016.
  • Upgrade of playground 2017

In this year’s Capital Works Program, Council allocated money to further implement the specific objectives of the Masterplan through the upgrade of access stairs extending between Waiwera Street and Lavender Crescent in Watt Park. This stairway is in a very poor and unsafe condition and needs to be improved.

Based on the Community's feedback to date on this project, a set of four options for the reconstruction have now been developed to improve the safety and ease of use of the stairway for pedestrians.

Note: Please refer to the proposed options and indicative materials available in the 'Document Library' prior to your submission. If you have already made a submission and it's still relevant to the options, there is no need to re-submit; all feedback will be considered together, you only need to comment on anything new.
