July City Hub: Record investment in Waverley

Record investment in Waverley

With the new financial year well underway, I would like to reflect on my Council’s achievements over the past 12 months, most especially our investment in major projects to improve the experience of Waverley for our residents and visitors over the coming years.

Council is building a new playground and accessible pathway at Marks Park, Tamarama, as part of an upgrade project that will include low-rise landscaping, erosion mitigation and improved pedestrian access from Marks Lane.

The pathway will provide independent step-free access around the heavily used perimeter of the park.

We have also committed around $70 million to projects at Bondi Beach to make the area better and safer for all including new amenities for South Bondi and improved pedestrian safety in Notts Avenue.

We expect to receive development application approval in September for the Bondi Pavilion restoration, with works to begin in mid-2020.

Our South Bronte Amenities and Community Centre upgrade project will deliver a beautifully designed amenities building responding to the needs of immediate stakeholders, locals and visitors of this space. Our streetscape improvements at Bronte Village Centre will also improve pedestrian safety and amenity and create an integrated public transport interchange with safer and accessible access.
