We are developing a Concept Design for Burringbar Street, Mullumbimby.
The Concept Design looks at ways to make Burringbar Street more:
- Safe for pedestrians
The aim is to develop a Concept Design that reflects what local businesses and the wider community want to see happen in this street in the future.
Feedback closed on the 2 October 2023, read on to find out more about what we heard and the next steps for this project.
Results of community feedback
We ran an online survey in September 2023 which asked you, what is most important for your street? We received over 200 responses.
We heard that car parking, pedestrian safety, and place-making were among the key concerns for users of Burringbar Street.
We also discussed the project and survey at an ‘On Street Discussion’ on 28 September 2023.

Concept Design Workshop
On Friday 13 October, we held a Concept Design Workshop with community and state representatives.
At the workshop we shared the project objectives and site analysis.
Attendees shared their insights into opportunities and constraints to inform the design.
The key themes to come out of the workshop were:
- Increased pedestrian safety.
- Improved accessibility and inclusion.
- Greater placemaking, such as seating, amenities, trees and greenery.
- Desire to make the street a safer and more inclusive space.
The day concluded with three potential concepts with varying levels of change required.
We have also had direct briefing sessions with the following stakeholders:
- Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce (Executive)
- Transport for NSW
- NSW Police
- Council’s Access Consultative Working Group.
Over the coming months, we will refine a draft Concept Design, which takes into account:
- Latest site analysis.
We're aiming to present the draft Concept Design to a Council Meeting in late 2023. The Concept Design will then go out for feedback in early 2024.
We are aiming for the Concept Design to be finalised by June 2024.
The plan includes Burringbar Street between Dalley and Station Streets and the intersections in this area, Burringbar Street, Mullumbimby 2482 View Map
