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.
