Young Street Plaza

Council is seeking community feedback on the design of a new plaza in Young St (between Military Rd and Grosvenor Lane).

Young St Plaza consultation panel (5MB)

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.

 

Project Highlights

  • Closure of Young Street between Military Rd and Grosvenor Lane (driveway and loading zone access will be retained).
  • 700sq m of high quality landscaped space for community use.
  • 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 Rd 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.
  • High quality paving and materials.
  • New street trees, garden beds and public seating.
