Laneway activation

The Council has recently completed a successful project converting four service lanes into practical and vibrant connections. Post Office Lane, Charlotte Lane, Spring Place, and Mills Lane in Chatswood CBD have undergone a significant transformation as a result of the project.

The primary objective revolves around enhancing pedestrian well-being by expanding connectivity along Victoria Avenue and elevating visual aesthetics, underscoring our commitment to cultivating a business-friendly environment. By actively repurposing underutilised spaces, our goal is to reshape perceptions, foster understanding, and create additional opportunities for business growth.

We invite businesses, talents, and organisations to explore the possibilities, connect with the community, and position yourself in Chatswood's evolving landscape. The revitalised laneways await your unique contribution, becoming not just pathways but catalysts for growth, creativity, and a vibrant sense of community.
