Joslin Street, Kotara

Project Scope

To resolve streetscape, access and traffic issues and inform infrastructure renewal in the Joslin Street Kotara local centre.

What is the process and where are we up to?

The neighbourhood centre of Joslin Street, Kotara has been prioritised for improvements.

City of Newcastle ran a survey in December 2017 to gain feedback from the community about issues related to the public domain and priorities for improvements.  The information provided by the community was used with data gathered from a site analysis to inform a draft public domain plan.

The draft public domain plan (draft plan) will guide redesign of the road and footpath, lighting and landscaping within the centre.  The draft plan was publicly exhibited in May 2019.  Submissions are currently being assessed prior to consideration by the Newcastle City Traffic Committee and then by the elected Council.

The   Public Domain Planning Process Flow Chart (pdf) outlines the process in more detail.
