In 2022, we committed $2.3 million in LXRP funding to upgrade the Edithvale shopping strip, which spans across 11 blocks (from 280 Nepean Highway in the south to the intersection at Nepean Highway and Natal Avenue in the north). And Council will support this with an additional $1 million to undertake flood mitigation works.

The aim is to create a welcoming and cohesive precinct, which creates a positive shopping and visitor experience and helps to boost the local economy.

To ensure we get this right, we have been undertaking investigations into:

  • streetscape design
  • stormwater drainage
  • greening/landscaping
  • project planning and delivery
  • project timing and challenges
  • local history
  • public art elements
  • connectivity with other projects
  • stakeholders
  • creating a sense of place, and
  • accessibility and gender diversity.

We also ran two community engagements this year (2023) to find out what traders/stakeholders and the local community want us to deliver for them to revitalise Edithvale.

The work is being budgeted for delivery in 2025–26.
