Will vehicle access still be available in Redman Road Plaza?
Some vehicle access will still be available to adjoining properties via a vehicle and pedestrian ‘Shared Zone’ for half the length of the proposed plaza. There will be no vehicle parking and vehicle speeds will be restricted to 10kmh within the ‘Shared Zone’.
There will be no vehicle access, other than for maintenance, to the other half of the plaza.
Where is the water feature shown on Redman Road in the Masterplan?
Redman Road is an overland floodway during large storms and the concept shown in the Master Plan was not viable or practical. The current proposal has been designed to provide an attractive public space which provides minimum impedance to the overland flows or flooding to adjoining properties.
When will the work start and how long wil it take?
Work on Redman Road Plaza is proposed to be undertaken in two parts. The
eastern half will be constructed first. The start of these works is reliant on
the undergrounding of overhead electrical power, the timeframe of which is
difficult to predict due to the need to obtain approval from the energy
How will Council pay for the redevelopment?
The upgrade to the public spaces in Dee Why Town Centre, including the new Walter Gors Park and Redman Road Plaza, will be funded from development contributions.
Council has been collecting private developer contributions under the Warringah Section 94A Development Contributions Plan 2014.
