Latest news

Over the last few years, the hospitality industry nationally and within our City has been dramatically impacted by COVID-19. As a result, all levels of government have considered ways to support the sector and locally, we have introduced a number of measures to support our businesses.

As detailed in the Economic Development Strategy and the Night Time Economy Action Plan, we are investigating ways to support local traders, particularly those that have potential to fuel a growth in the after-dark and/or weekend economy. We currently have processes in place for business to utilise footpath space and the parklet trial will help us better understand and evaluate expanding the opportunity to utilise street spaces, public spaces and parklets.

Council’s objective is to create a City that is renowned for its vibrancy, culture, opportunity, safety and centrality; a go-to City, for work, living, and memorable experiences.

This Trial

At the 22 October 2022 Ordinary meeting, Council authorised the hosting of a three-month trial of a street parklet in Hurlstone Park village.

The parklet trial will be hosted from December 2022 to the end of March 2023.

In hosting and monitoring this trial, we will be better informed to report back to Council on the impacts, benefits and challenges of the parklet on the local community, local business and the organisation. At the end of the trial period, Council will consider whether to end or expand parklets to other LGA based business.

If the decision is made to expand parklets to other centres in the LGA, this trial will have provided experience-based knowledge to assist with the development of the application and evaluation processes, policies, procedures and charges which currently do not exist i.e. there are no processes or mechanisms in place to allow for this to occur.
