Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Better Neighbourhood Project?
The Better Neighbourhood Program (BNP) is a long-running and successful Council program that focuses on the capital upgrades of local centres outside of the Parramatta CBD. The BNP commenced in 1999 and delivers improvements to centres with the goal of enhancing safety, vitality and economic prosperity.
Between 2011 and 2019, Council invested $11,761,333 in BNP projects, which consist primarily of:
- Capital upgrades to local, town and neighbourhood centres. Examples of projects delivered include streetscape upgrades at Ermington, Toongabbie, Carlingford, Mobbs Lane and Tintern Avenue shops.
- Connecting Centres projects to improve access to local centres and neighbourhoods; and
- Complementary public domain improvements.
Areas are prioritised for upgrade based on a number of factors, including the condition of the centre, its vibrancy, and its connectivity. The community voice also plays an important role and nearly 400 local residents provided feedback to prioritise projects in 2018/19 and 2019/20.
How are centres selected for upgrades?
Every two years City of Parramatta’s Place Services team audit the 45 centres on the local government area and score them based on asset condition, accessibility, shade cover, potential for outdoor dining, vacancy rates etc. The centres that are determined to be ‘most in need’ at that point in time are prioritised for funding.
When will construction take place?
We anticipate construction will begin early in 2021. Businesses and residents will be consulted throughout the design processes and notified of all dates for construction.
Will I still be able to access my business/work/residence while construction is happening?
The contracted construction company will work with businesses to ensure access to their premises is maintained throughout the duration of the works.
Will there be less parking?
To ensure that the current pedestrian crossing meets Australian Road standards there will need to be no stopping restrictions both before and after the crossing. This may reduce in some parking loss, but this will be detailed as the design progresses.

We know that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the City of Parramatta community and economy. It is an extremely challenging time for many, so it’s important that Council does everything possible to support our people during this pandemic and beyond.
We have introduced a range of measures to help residents, businesses, and staff get through this, including a plan to fast-track projects that will help support the local economy and provide jobs.
It’s important that Council continues to seek feedback from the community on projects as your input matters. By working together, we can build a more resilient City that will be ready and open for business when the time is right.
