Fox Valley Road shops get a makeover

Fox Valley Shopping Centre

Ku-ring-gai Council is upgrading the popular local shopping strip with work to be completed by the middle of next year.

Council is progressively upgrading several local shopping areas under the ‘Neighbourhood Centres Revitalisation Program’, with the Fox Valley Road centre the latest to receive a facelift.

The aim of the program is to make local shopping centres more pedestrian friendly and improve their attractiveness to shoppers through modified layouts, new street furniture and landscaping.

Businesses and residents in the Fox Valley Road shopping strip were asked their opinion earlier this year about the makeover.

As a result the redesigned shopping area will have new paving and footpaths, bike parking, improved seating and landscaping. 

Parking will be reconfigured to allow for similar number of car spaces while providing a larger paved area outside the front of cafes and shops for pedestrian access and outdoor eating.

Mayor Jennifer Anderson said input from local businesses and residents had been invaluable in guiding the design.

“Fox Valley Road is a thriving local centre and we hope the upgrade will make it even more attractive for shoppers.”
