Lindfield Village Green

Lindfield Village Green will be a vibrant new civic space in the very heart of Lindfield, a distinctive destination of choice for residents, visitors and businesses.

Lindfield Village Green (LVG) is a project developed out of Council’s award-winning Open Space Acquisition Program. The aim of the program is to deliver new local parks and public plazas in areas where residential densities and population are increasing.

The project will transform the existing Council-owned car park on Tryon Road into a contemporary village green by relocating the existing public car parking underground. This will free up the surface and enable the creation of a new public plaza and park. Also included will be a pavilion building housing a café or restaurant with public toilets, as well as an elevator and stair access to the basement car park.

The Green will comprise broad areas of soft landscaping including trees and shaded seating areas, as well as generous pathways and paved areas. These will be designed for social gatherings and easy pedestrian and bicycle movement through the plaza with connections to the train station.

The vision for the LVG project is to become a modern exemplar of sustainable urbanism. The Village Green will play a central role in community life for Lindfield residents, business people, commuters, shoppers and visitors. The project will be striving for high environmental ratings by showcasing water sensitive urban design, water capture, storage and reuse, and water conservation systems.

Planned as an economic driver for the revitalisation of the eastern side of the Lindfield local centre, the project aims to generate a range of property investment and business development opportunities on properties adjoining the new village green.
