Why are we upgrading Redman Road Plaza?
Northern Beaches Council is improving Dee Why Town Centre through the implementation of Council’s award winning Dee Why Town Centre Masterplan 2013.
As part of the revitalisation, Redman Road Plaza was identified as a key site which could provide the community with a greener, more open space, activating and bringing life to the western side of Pittwater Road.
What consultation has been done so far?
In June 2015, we exhibited preliminary design plans for Redman Road Plaza. After receiving positive feedback from the community, the designs were then adopted in August 2015.
We also held three information sessions throughout June and July 2015
What features does the design include?
Redman Road Plaza features;
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.
What trees will we be planting at Redman Road Plaza and when will they be planted?
We will be planting the following trees at Redman Road Plaza;
The trees will be planted in two planter beds along either side of the plaza.
What size will they be when planted?
The Cabbage Tree Palms will be 6m tall and the Chinese Elms will be 4m tall
Who will maintain the trees and plants?
The contractor will be responsible for the maintenance of the plants for the first 12 months, following that Councils maintenance team will be responsible for the maintenance of the trees and plants
For more information, visit the Project Page.
Who is doing the works?
Landscape Solutions were the successful tenders appointed to manage and undertake the works.
How long will it take to complete the works and what times will they be done?
The works are due to commence March 2017 and be completed in July 2017
Works will be undertaken between the hours of 7am – 5pm Monday to Friday, as well as 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.
How will these works impact me?
There will be temporary diversions to pedestrian access through the plaza, however access will never be fully restricted.
There will be noise at times especially during demolition phases, however all efforts will be made to minimise the impacts of this noise.
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.
What are we doing to address parking issues?
How much is the redevelopment of Redman Road going to cost?
Based on our current preliminary designs, we expect that the approximate cost for Redman Road will be $1.8 million.
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.
