3 July: Seven Ways Upgrade

Seven Ways Upgrade

Our community consultation for our Seven Ways upgrade at North Bondi is now complete and I’m pleased to report that we had overwhelming support from the consultation about what Council has planned for the upgrade.

A total of 142 surveys were received during the 30-day exhibition period and over 90 per cent of respondents said they liked what Council has planned.

The most common reasons the respondents supported the concept were:

  • creating a space that is usable for the community
  • the finishes used, and the design concept
  • creating more green space, additional planting and trees
  • it was viewed as a good investment
  • the pedestrianising of Warners Lane.

Consultation included seeking feedback from local residents, visitors and businesses at the Seven Ways. Feedback was sought through a paper based and online survey, focused meetings and briefings, and general submissions.

Council will prepare the tender documentation and engage a head contractor to deliver the project. It is anticipated the project will be completed by the end of November.
