Public Domain Style Manual and Design Codes

The Public Domain Style Manual and Design Codes are guidelines that address the streetscape character, functionality and accessibility. The aim is to set out comprehensive design objectives to achieve a distinctive look among all the different villages in the North Sydney local government area. They are practical guides covering all aspects of urban street design, streetscape furniture and public domain elements.

From 2014 onwards, one key change was replacing the existing sandstone pavers in the CBD with hard wearing granite possessing a serviceable finish. The granite is a complimentary colour to the existing sandstone so that the transition will blend into the streetscape. Other significant modifications include new designs for seats and bus shelters in the North Sydney Local Government Area.
