City of Parramatta Council Local Centres Review 2019


What improvements would you like to see made to your local shops?

We're reviewing local shops - have your say today.


Thank you for your contributions to this project. Submissions are now closed and we are in the process of reviewing your feedback. We will keep you updated on this page as the project progresses.

City of Parramatta Council is interested in your experience at your local shops and is looking for ways to make these areas more attractive and more convenient to use. Local shops are clusters of shops that meet your everyday needs, such as your grocer, pharmacy, hairdresser and newsagency.

This consultation is part of the Better Neighbourhood Project (BNP) that occurs every two years. Commencing in 1999, the BNP focuses on providing upgrades to local centres outside of the Parramatta CBD, making improvements to Council-owned assets such as footpaths, nature strips, street furniture and carparks.

Based on consultations, Council invested more than $7 million into neighbourhoods between 2011 and 2016 via the BNP. Examples of projects delivered under this program include upgrades to town centres and streetscapes at Ermington, Westmead and Carlingford, and improvements to the Mobbs Lane shops in Carlingford and Iron Street shops in North Parramatta.

Council has allocated $3 million to neighbourhood centre upgrades over the next two years. Have your say now to help inform Council’s decisions about which centres should be improved, and what works should be undertaken. You may comment on up to three centres if you wish. All responses are confidential and will only be visible to the relevant Council delegates for the purposes of this project.

For more information, please contact Council’s Place Services Team via email or on (02) 9806 5050.


Centres are selected for upgrade based on a combination of factors, including: the condition of the centre, public transport accessibility, and community sentiment. Have your say now to tell us which centres you would like to see improved, and what kind of upgrades you would like undertaken.
