We have received a $4.75 million grant from the NSW Government under the Public Spaces Legacy Program to create a new public plaza at Knox Street, Double Bay.

“This is a great result for the local community and will absolutely enhance Knox Street which has always been at the heart of our Double Bay Village,” Member for Vaucluse Gabrielle Upton said.

“The project creates a new public pedestrian area on Knox Street with new lighting, plantings, public art and seating so that it is an enjoyable and well-designed place for our whole community to enjoy.” Ms Upton said.

Mayor of Woollahra Susan Wynne said, “We are so grateful for this funding from the NSW Government, which will further enhance Double Bay’s commercial centre by providing a whole new experience as well as expanded and safer pedestrian access.

“It’s such an exciting project that will completely transform Knox Street and further add to the growing popularity of Double Bay,” the Mayor said.

There will be an opportunity to have your say on the plaza design later in the year.

The new plaza will be ready to enjoy by the end of 2022.
