Project background

We're launching a Vibrant Villages Recovery Program to support our local businesses and community to bounce back from the impacts of COVID-19.

This program aims to:

  • Improve the attractiveness of local centres for visitors
  • Support local business to adapt and enhance their trading
  • Create more active and lively centres.

As part of this program we are exploring the possibility of establishing temporary shared spaces across the City which will enable businesses to increase their on street dining or run pop-up promotions or events. These temporary shared spaces will only go ahead with significant support from adjacent local businesses, residents and the wider community and will be in place for a maximum of 6 months from December 2021 to May 2022.


Proposed locations

The following 6 locations have been put forward as potential sites for these shared spaces as they pose minimal impact to local parking conditions and traffic flow, whilst providing sufficient opportunity for adjacent businesses:

  • Currawong Lane Car Park, Concord
  • Clermont Avenue and Concord Road, Concord
  • Altona Street and Great North Road, Abbotsford (Note: feedback from residents and businesses received to date has not been in favour of this shared space)
  • Coranto Street and Great North Road, Wareemba
  • McDonald Street and Tennyson Road, Mortlake
  • Edwin Street and Tennyson Road, Mortlake.

The proposed spaces at Clermont Avenue and McDonald Street will require temporary changes to traffic conditions which will be subject to approval from Transport for NSW.
