  • Bondi Pavilion Further Community Consultation and Engagement

    5 months ago
    Pav1

    In December 2015 a concept design for the Bondi Pavilion Upgrade and Conservation Project was released for community consultation. In April 2016 Council considered community feedback and requested changes to the concept design.

    The concept design was then amended, and Council conducted a further 8 week consultation and engagement period finishing 23 September 2016. There was opportunity for small group discussions on particular topics, information booths, an onsite workshop and an online survey. The consultation allowed opportunity for feedback and submissions on any aspect of the project, and had particular focus on:

There was opportunity for small group discussions on particular topics, information booths, an onsite workshop and an online survey. The consultation allowed opportunity for feedback and submissions on any aspect of the project, and had particular focus on:

    • Development of a Fair Use policy to provide fair and equitable access to the Bondi Pavilion Cultural and Community Centre
    • The appropriate mix of uses on the first floor
    • Theatre operations, technology and programming
    • Gallery and exhibition space programming
    • Music facilities and programs in the building and in Waverley
    • Consideration of how best to interpret the heritage of Bondi Pavilion and Bondi, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and identifying opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural activities, art, information, education and business to be included in the Pavilion project

    The reports on the recent consultation is now available.You can view them here.

    On Tuesday 15 November, Council voted to proceed with Phase 1 of the renovations of the iconic Bondi Pavilion.

    Phase 1 will focus on some critical needs of the building and adjacent works. This includes in the northern courtyard:

    • Building new and larger toilet facilities
    • Environmentally sustainable design measures including improved waste facilities
    • A new gallery/exhibition/museum space
    • Pottery, kiln and music studio facilities.
    • Landscaped courtyards and outdoor seating with space for the community to relax.

    Phase 1 will also include roof replacement and external façade works for the whole building.

    Council agreed to defer any decision on the rest of the project until after the next Council is elected, expected to be September 2017. This includes decisions about use of the upper level, the proposed new theatre and changes to existing music studios and the High Tide Room. Those future decisions will be informed by the community consultation reports that have already been produced and new reports that will include a Business Case, Fair Use Policy, Theatre Programming and Management and Cultural and Community impact assessment.

    It is expected that a Development Application for Phase 1 works will be submitted in February 2017. Plans will then be subject to a statutory exhibition process and members of the public will have a further opportunity to provide comment. Construction of Phase 1 would be expected to take about 12 months, commencing late 2017 or the early months of 2018

    Decisions about the first floor and other parts of the project will take place after the next Council elections, expected to occur in September 2017.

It has evolved over the years adapting to the needs of pedestrians, restaurants and vehicles.

    Campbell Parade is the gateway to the iconic Bondi Beach and is the key connection between the commercial strip and beach. The street has a rich history – originally a tram line in the early 1900’s, and is lined with a mix of heritage and contemporary buildings. It has evolved over the years adapting to the needs of pedestrians, restaurants and vehicles.

    We want to make Campbell Parade a world-class destination that complements the famous Bondi Beach with vibrant outdoor dining, shopping and great views to the beach. The street should offer premium quality public footpaths, comfortable and attractive public seating and restaurant seating, art and landscaping.

    Background

    In 2015 we undertook a detailed review of Campbell Parade including the condition of footpaths, restaurant seating, street furniture, public art, and pedestrian counts. We also met with restaurants along this street to discuss footpath seating. We have now developed conceptual plans to address key issues and enhance this important street. The concepts include new shade structures for improved outdoor dining areas, new footpath paving, more street trees and safer pedestrian crossings. The project scope did not include changes to parking or traffic.

    Council has also developed a Pilot Project to test and review the proposed new shade structure design for footpath seating. The structures are unique and reflect the beachside character, have integrated lighting and heating, as well as glass balustrades for wind protection. One structure will be installed between Curlewis Street and Beach Road at the end of 2016 for a 3 year trial, enabling the community and businesses to see and experience a new possibility for Campbell Parade, and will help to determine if this approach is suitable for the rest of Campbell Parade.

    The full report is available here

    We are also hosting sessions where you can see plans and talk to staff.

    Saturday 15th October 10am – 12pm
