This consultation has concluded. Community feedback will be used to assist in the development of a concept design for the new plaza. The design will be exhibited here in mid-2021. You can read the outcomes of the consultation here.

Randwick City Council is planning to create a new urban plaza in the heart of Randwick Junction.

Waratah Ave will be closed to vehicles between Belmore Road and Arthur Lane and handed over to people to use as informal place to gather and sit.

The new town centre plaza is one of several proposed public domain upgrades identified in the Draft Randwick Junction Planning Strategy which plans to invigorate the town centre and create renewed public open space for the community and visitors alike to enjoy.

Council is collaborating with design firm GroupGSA. Opportunities for the new plaza include seating and landscaping, as well as terraced spaces for markets, exhibitions, and street performance.

The town centre plaza will be designed to ensure:

  • The existing mature fig trees are retained and enhanced in the new plaza design.
  • Pedestrian and vehicle access to the adjacent private properties is maintained.
  • Equitable access is achieved to ensure all Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements are met.
  • Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles are incorporated into the design.
  • Vehicles access is maintained in both directions on Arthur Lane to allow access to Belmore Road from Silver Street and/or Arthur Street.

Additional on street parking will be created along Belmore Road to offset parking removed from Waratah Avenue.

Council’s Traffic Management Plan (TMP) for Road Closure on Waratah Avenue has been approved by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). View the approved plan here.

We invite you to share your ideas and vision for the new plaza to help shape its design by:

The project is jointly funded by Randwick Council and the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.

Consultation period: 17 March to 13 April 2021.
