Consultation on Napier Street improvements

Join me on at midday, Saturday 11 February at 12 noon in Napier Street, Paddington to discuss the City’s proposal to improve this public space.

Napier Street was permanently closed to traffic in the 1980s to create a discrete public space connecting the residential niche of western Paddington with Oxford Street.

The City plans to renew the space, using the existing tree canopy to create a green, shaded space with new seating and garden areas, better lighting and new pathways. Connections from surrounding streets will be improved and the proposed design will provide opportunities for small events such as a community picnic or art exhibition.     

In August last year, City staff spoke with local residents and businesses to gather their ideas on how to improve the space. Context, an urban design and landscaping architectural firm, has used these ideas to create a design. We would like to hear your comments, which will use to develop more detailed designs. Council will consider these designs which will also be placed on public exhibition for further community feedback.

Information:

  • Napier Street community consultation: Saturday 11 February from midday, Napier Street, near the intersection with Oxford Street. In the event of wet weather, the consultation will move to Cafe On The Other Side, on the corner of Albion Avenue and Selwyn Street, Paddington.

Two weeks after getting it wrong, the Daily Tele 'clarifies' their errors. But today's effort gets it wrong too. Despite claims in this 'clarification', the Tele always knew @cityofsydney was not involved in this project because we and CoDesign Studio told them so from the beginning. They won't let the facts get in the way of their agenda.

This is Mary Veronica, the new tunneling machine which will help flood-proof Green Square. Anyone living in or passing through the Green Square area during April's torrential rains would remember chest-high water and flooding. Work has commenced on a new 2.4km underground stormwater drain to reduce the damage of such floods and help make this area a great place for thousands of people to live and work safely. At a cost of more than $90 million, this project is a key component of the City’s $440 million transformation plan for new infrastructure and community facilities.
