A Coogee Bay Road dining and entertainment pop-up precinct is among a range of ideas being considered by Randwick City Council to support Randwick City businesses get back on their feet following COVID-19.
With food and accommodation sectors hardest hit by the pandemic with thousands of jobs lost, Council is working with businesses on activation ideas and ways to attract customers and create local jobs.
One idea being discussed with Coogee businesses is a potential three-month activation program to provide more space for people to gather, eat and drink and assist businesses with social distancing requirements. A part of the road could be closed to traffic and turned over to community use.
The activation ideas include a ‘live and local’ stage for local musicians, pop-up parks with real grass, plants and seating, street art, giant games and moveable tables and chairs.
A final decision on whether to proceed with any temporary activation proposal is yet to be made and will be considered by Council once a detailed plan has been developed.
But the idea has the backing of some local businesses including the Coogee Beach Burrito Company, Little Jack Horner cafe and the Coogee Bay Hotel.
