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.

Today we unveiled Yininmadyemi, an artwork which celebrates and commemorates our Indigenous service men and women. Aboriginal artist Tony Albert’s work features four seven-metre tall, 1.5 tonne bullets and three fallen shells to represent the diggers who returned to Australia and the ones who lost their lives. The contribution and sacrifice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served or are now serving in our armed forces has gone unrecognised for too long. I hope this work will inspire and remind us all of the vitality of indigenous culture and its continuing connections to our land.

Thanks to everyone who showed their support for @alexgreenwich on the weekend and kept Sydney independent! It wouldn't have been possible without the extraordinary efforts of so many volunteers and community members.
