Local Village Beautification

Waverley Council is beautifying village centres through the installation of planter boxes at various locations across the Local Government Area. Locations have been deliberately chosen to allow officers to test plant palettes and operational management of the planters on a smaller scale, before reviewing potential expansion to other areas in the LGA.

Installation will begin in late November 2021 at the following locations:

  • Bronte Village
  • Campbell Parade at North Bondi Bus Terminus
  • Charing Cross
  • Grafton Street (Adelaide Street to Newland Street)
  • Macpherson Street at Lugar Street
  • Macpherson Street at St Thomas Street
  • Murriverie Road at Mitchell Street
  • Old South Head Road (Strickland Street to Onslow Street)
  • Old South Head Road at Oceanview Avenue
  • Oxford Street Mall (hanging baskets only)

Plant selection has been informed by the Species List in Waverley Council’s Public Domain Technical Manual, which considers the qualities of the place, its history, uses, the needs of the community and the natural environment. More information on our proposed planting scheme and planter locations is available here.

The planters selected have been tested in road and footpath environments for performance, safety, and longevity. They are of simple design and do not conflict with heritage design nor do they attempt to be pseudo-heritage in nature. They are in line with the aesthetic of other surrounding Councils.

Installation of the new planters will commence in late November 2021, subject to COVID-19 restrictions on fabrication. It is anticipated that it will take several hours to unload and place the pre-planted planter boxes at each location. The planters will be watered and maintained by council’s contractors weekly or as required.
