Your High Street – Coronation StrEat!

Coronation Street concept

Council has been awarded a NSW Government grant through the Your High Street program to improve the amenity of Coronation Street, Hornsby.

The project will repurpose a portion of an existing carpark on Coronation Street in Hornsby to create a new public space – celebrating the heritage infrastructure and providing a space for outdoor dining, farmers markets, live music and other activities for all to enjoy.

Why?

Your High Street is a state-wide program to promote permanent improvement projects in local government areas. This will boost high street businesses, local economies and public wellbeing in response to COVID-19.

The Your High Street program aims to:

  • improve/ increase the number of uses over day and night;
  • improve safety and comfort;
  • improve local accessibility and connections; and
  • increase footfall and capacity for trade for businesses.

The program provides grant funding for councils to undertake projects that improve the amenity of local high streets, boosting economic recovery by 2022 while improving people’s safety and experiences.

The grant program is aligned to NSW Government’s COVID recovery initiatives that will equip our cities, towns and neighbourhood centres to revitalise local economies with safe community activation of public spaces.

What is a high street?

More than just a street for the movement of motor vehicles, high streets can be found in centres throughout local government areas, they are principal streets providing vitality to the local neighbourhoods, supporting the local area with jobs and services such as shopping, dining, entertainment, health and personal services to meet the daily and weekly needs of the local community. Revitalisation of high streets can drive town centre renewal, supporting community and businesses to rebound now and beyond COVID-19.
