The Talking Street Trial has kicked off in Mullumbimby. The trial aims to test new ideas and ways to turn Burringbar Street and the Mullumbimby town centre into a more attractive, safe and people-friendly public space.

From March 2021, we will be rolling out this project in stages over the next few months and it will remain in place until December 2021.

What the trial includes

The Talking Street trial project will test the following initiatives and we would love to hear what you think:

Two pop-up parklets

Two new, wooden parklets are arriving in the Mullumbimby town centre on Friday 26 March; one is in the taxi rank in front of Mullumbimby Herbals and the other is in front of the Newsagent near the bus stop on Stuart Street.

The temporary parklets include:

  • built-in seating
  • tables
  • umbrellas for shade

We have also invited local high school students to collaborate on creation of artwork for these spaces.

Next time you're in town we invite you to make use of these new pop-up public spaces.

Smaller parklet spaces available for local businesses

Expressions of interest will be sought from businesses for temporary use of smaller unused spaces in Burringbar Street, located between garden beds and parking spaces.

New temporary pedestrian crossing

This new crossing is being temporarily added at the eastern end of Burringbar Street near the Commonwealth Bank to create better connection.

Reduced speed zone in Burringbar Street

A 30km/hr speed limit will be in place for the whole length of Burringbar Street.
