This consultation has closed. At the Ordinary Council Meeting, 29 September 2020, Council endorsed the plan to temporarily make Coogee Bay Road a one-way street. For more information, read our latest news.

Randwick Council has been working with local businesses in Coogee to assist them through the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve heard that they have been hard hit with restrictions on patron numbers for cafes and restaurants. They are asking for more space for social distancing and outdoor dining.

To support businesses and our local community navigate COVID-19 safely we are proposing to create more footpath space on Coogee Bay Rd for outdoor dining and to help people spread out.

Vehicle access will be maintained on Coogee Bay Road but will become one-way between Arden and Brook Streets, while parking will be maintained on both sides of the road.

The extra space created by temporarily removing a travel lane will assist in social distancing, helping provide more space for outdoor dining at local businesses and creating a livelier and more pleasant town centre for shoppers.

The proposal is part of Randwick Council’s COVID support plan and is proposed to commence in October 2020 for an initial trial period of three months.

We want to know what you think about the plans! Have your say now using our feedback tool. We're also calling for expressions of interest from local performers and entertainers who may be interested in street based performing.

Consultation period: 7 - 22 September 2020

    From November, Coogee Bay Road will temporarily become a one-way street in order to provide additional space for local businesses to extend trading areas, install COVID-safe dining options and provide other opportunities for social distancing. The one-way road will be in place between Arden Street and Brook Street, heading west and maintains parking amenity. The trial will last for three months and has received support from residents and businesses. This project has been granted $100,000 from the State Government’s Shared Spaces Fund.
