Tomorrow's Dulwich Hill. Stage 3. Actions - Tennyson Street and Ness Avenue


Tennyson Street

This project aims to slow traffic while realising the Tomorrow's Dulwich Hill goals by working with residents in these streets.

Council has held three collaborative design workshops with the stakeholders below to develop a plan for Tennyson Street and Ness Avenue:

20 July – Council staff

23 July – Tomorrow's Dulwich Hill Citizens Working Group

27 November - Tennyson Street and Ness Avenue residents


Ness Avenue

The common themes coming out of these workshops are:

  • Slowing the traffic
  • Including a cycleway
  • Involving residents in the construction and ongoing maintenance
  • Managing street trees
  • Creating a softer, greener landscape
  • Planting native gardens
  • Designing for rain water runoff and reuse
  • Creating narrower crossing points
  • Investigating slower traffic speeds
  • Maintaining parking
  • Improving the look of the streets
February 2016

Council has now scoped the project, reviewed the original draft designs and prepared new draft designs for Tennyson Street and Ness Avenue.

Do you live in Ness Avenue or Tennyson Street?

You’re invited to discuss the draft designs at a community meeting:

When: Thursday evening, 10 March, 2016

Where: Tennyson Street Playground

Time: 5.00pm – 7.00pm

If you prefer, you can send your feedback in writing by 13 March to: snezana.bakovic@marrickville.nsw.gov.au.

Feedback from residents will inform the report to the Pedestrian, Cyclist and Traffic Calming Advisory Committee that will then go to Council for approval for construction.
