Lindfield Village Green - a new civic space in Lindfield

Lindfield Village Green will transform the existing Council-owned car park at Tryon Road into a new public space. This exciting project will play a central role in community life for Lindfield residents, business people, commuters, shoppers and visitors.

The Village Green includes a café or restaurant and a public plaza. It is designed for social gatherings and easy movement of pedestrian and cyclists to the train station. When complete, the Village Green may host markets, outdoor cinema, live music and other performances to enliven the area.

The Village Green will also have public toilets, dual lifts and stair access to the basement car park.

Approval of the amended DA was granted in August 2018. Following the call for tenders, construction is scheduled to begin early to mid 2020.

Project update

Council at its meeting on 20 February accepted a tender submission for the construction of the Lindfield Village Green. This means that construction will commence in April 2020.

Council is currently working with the builder to finalise the commencement date. Once identified, we will be providing detailed information to the community, local building owners, residents and businesses about the program of works and arrangements up to and during the construction which will take approximately 18 months.

Please note that Tryon Road car park will be closed during construction.
