The Five Dock Metro is currently underway and long periods of construction pose a number of challenges for local businesses. Sydney Metro have appointed Place Managers to manage the area as work progresses and we would like to send them a proposed strategy to guide programs aimed at supporting our local businesses through this difficult time.
Council recently met with a group of business owners in Five Dock to discuss potential challenges and opportunities. Predicted challenges include:
- Heavy truck movements
- Construction noise
- Lack of parking (trades parking, road closures, relocation of bus stops)
- Disruption to deliveries
- Visual appeal of the streetscape
- Footpath dining becoming less attractive
- Vacant sites.
We want to know what support your business needs in order to minimise disruptions brought by this construction. Feedback will be used to create a strategy to support local business, which will be presented to Council later this month and then taken to Sydney Metro.
Complete the survey below to have your say. Feedback closes at 5pm on Monday, 1 November 2021.
