About the project

Council released a newsletter to approximately 12,700 households and businesses on Monday 30 September, which included concept design and asked the community to provide feedback. Community consultation was undertaken between Monday 30 September and Friday 25 October 2019.

The purpose of the concept design was to identify opportunities to increase safety for all road users along Dornoch Terrace.

The concept design aimed to:

  • providing safe and continuous cycle facilities
  • reducing the speed of cyclists and motorists
  • addressing safety concerns caused by turning vehicles
  • providing a signalised intersection at Hampstead Road and Dornoch Terrace
  • improving pedestrian crossing points.

Community consultation update

Council received a large amount of feedback from local residents and business owners during the consultation period. Feedback was received via an online survey, emails and phone calls to the project team. The results of the survey were that 64% of respondents disagree with the proposal.

Based on this community feedback, Council will not proceed with the proposed concept design for Dornoch Terrace.

The most supported elements of the project related to pedestrian connectivity and intersection safety improvements. Therefore, these components will be considered for funding in the next Council budget.
