Council has secured a $1M grant from the NSW Government as part of the Your High Street Program. This grant funding will be put towards the delivery of our $3M Drummoyne Shared Spaces project to create two public spaces in Drummoyne for the whole community to enjoy.
Community feedback collated throughout the pilot period was taken to the Council Meeting on 16 March 2021. A resolution was made to make both shared spaces permanent and for further consultation to be conducted regarding the removal of ‘No Left Turn’ restrictions on Lyons Road.

2. THAT $18,000 funding for the temporary spaces be allocated to maintain the spaces from General Revenue.
3. THAT in principle support be given to the Church St closure with the details on traffic management, parking, activation, restrictions on use and costing be brought back to Council following results of the “Your High Street Grant”

More information will be shared regarding further community consultation in the lead up to the March 2021 Council Meeting.
A report on this project is going to our upcoming Council Meeting on Tuesday 16 February 2021.
Over 50% of feedback received for both the Formosa Street and Church Street spaces is positive, and as such Council is recommending both shared spaces be made permanent and that further landscaping, planting and amenity be developed to make the spaces inviting and community-focused places for the Drummoyne shopping precinct and its community. More detail can be found within the report.

At the Council Meeting on Tuesday 1 December, the Council adopted a motion to extend the Drummoyne Shared Spaces Pilot until 28 February 2021. This will offer the community more time to experience the space and provide feedback, and also provide a clearer picture of traffic impact in the area over a longer period. The additional 8 weeks will also provide us with more time to activate and monitor the pilot areas and provide a report to Council to consider the outcomes.

Council received funding from the NSW Government as part of the Streets as Shared Spaces Fund to pilot two temporary road closures in Drummoyne.
The pilot initially ran from 26 October–31 December 2020 and was subsequently extended until March 2021. This pilot involved the closure of a small section of Formosa Street at Lyons Road, and Church Street became one-way from Formosa Street to flow on to Victoria Road only.
In 2018, we asked the community to help us shape the 2019 Victoria Road Urban Design Review priorities. During this consultation, the community communicated that there was not enough public space to gather safely for events and outdoor dining. The community asserted that this would bring vitality and vibrancy to the commercial precinct.
Specifically, community members suggested two public space ideas that Council is now testing:

This pilot project is proudly funded by the NSW Government.
By creating new public spaces, we will promote how they could come to life for the local community to enjoy. We hope that the pilot will demonstrate how shared piazza style spaces can add to the area’s vibrancy, providing new opportunities for community events, and stimulating outcomes for local business.
Left hand turn onto Thompson Street from Lyons Road pilot
‘No Left Turn, 6am-10am Monday to Friday’ restrictions apply at a number of streets for westbound traffic on Lyons Road. As Council is temporarily removing the left hand turn into Formosa Street from Lyons Road, we will also be trialling removal of the ‘No Left Turn’ restriction on Lyons Road at Thompson St.
Note that traffic studies have shown this space should not be completely closed. See our fact sheet for more information.
Council will provide continued opportunities for feedback and discussion throughout the trial to understand the community’s concerns, while also analysing impact on traffic flow in the area.
This is a pilot. The community's feedback and uptake of Council activations during the pilot will help us to understand whether the shared spaces will work into the future. Your input is valuable to us!
