Young Street Plaza
At its meeting of 26 August 2019, Council resolved to:
undertake further design development and traffic impact assessment for the proposed Young Street Plaza to address the feedback raised during the community consultation; and
implement a trial closure of Young Street for a period of 3 months, with feedback sought during the trial period and reported back to Council.
Trial Plaza Highlights:
Sustainable design principles that are temporary in nature with elements that can be easily removed and/or reused if Council decides not to proceed with the permanent closure after the 3-month trial.
Recreation and entertainment space for residents and visitors of all ages which can be used day and night, that is contemporary, creative, to boost the village vitality and retail activity.
This project is fully funded by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) as part of the funding deed with Council for the streetscape upgrade works that complement the Northern Beaches B-Line Bus Service.
Construction will begin in June 2020 and the 3-month trial plaza will end September 2020.
During the trial period, Council will assess the traffic and parking impacts of the road closure to gain an understanding of the effects of the permanent road closure and make an informed decision about the future of the plaza.
