Joslin Street Kotara Neighbourhood Centre

Local and Neighbourhood Centres throughout the Newcastle Local Government Area are being renewed as part of Council's commitment to improve the visual amenity, community and safety functions of these centres.

The Neighbourhood Centre of Kotara has been prioritised for improvements. A public domain plan addressing road and footpath layout, lighting and landscaping, is being developed to resolve issues and guide renewal works.

Council gathered feedback from the community in December 2017 about issues related to the public domain and priorities for improvements, including:

  • Traffic safety
  • Parking
  • Access for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Problems with infrastructure - such as trees, footpaths and drainage
  • Poor public amenity - such as lack of lighting, bins, seating or shade
  • Poor aesthetics
  • Conflicts of use and anti-social behaviour
