We invite your feedback on our design to improve the footpaths and add more trees on Wiley and Myrtle streets and Dangar Place, Chippendale.

We propose to:

  • widen the footpath at some intersections to make it safer for people walking
  • plant 11 trees in roadway areas, away from power lines and footpaths;
  • construct a median strip on Myrtle Street.

Most trees will be planted away from parking areas. There will be a loss of 2 parking spaces to plant trees in Dangar Place.

This proposal is part of our commitment to provide a walkable city, increase tree canopy cover for shade and meet our Sustainable Sydney 2030 commitments.
