Have your say on the future of Leura Village traffic management
Through the Leura LATM study, Council is investigating traffic and transport challenges in Leura Village including solutions for parking, pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.
A number of proposed options have been recommended to address accessibility and infrastructure challenges, to improve the overall safety for all users, provide more pedestrian and cyclist friendly facilities and manage strategies for visitors in Leura.
These options are outlined in the Options Report on public exhibition until Monday 27 June 2022.

“Leura is a hugely popular village for both locals and tourists and this creates challenges in terms of traffic and balancing the needs of visitor numbers and the local population,” Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said.
“This project aims to improve safety for all road users, including our ageing community as well as children. It will also improve parking options and lower traffic noise, vibration levels and air pollution.
“I therefore urge our community to get involved, by accessing our online platform or by joining one of our face-to-face information sessions, to find out more and let us know what you think of the various options.”
The LATM study for the Leura Village precinct began in 2018. This first phase involved a holistic, evidence-based assessment of current traffic conditions in Leura and extensive community consultation. This identified existing traffic issues and the captured data was assessed alongside raw traffic data to determine the main areas of concern.
The resulting recommendations can be found in the Options Report, which outlines a range of targeted solutions to reduce traffic and improve the overall safety and amenity of the village, ensuring Leura remains an attractive place to live and visit.
