    • Outline• Introduction• Brief and study context• Consultation• Transport and Access• Civic Place Master PlanUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Brief and Study Context • Strategic planning for Umina Beach Village adopted by Council through the Peninsula Urban Directions Study will change the nature of the village centre into the long term. • Transport study needs to be able to respond to and support this change. • Masterplan study will allow Council to ensure quality design for buildings, landscaping and streetscapes. • Library is in need of renewal. • Greater community focus on active street life.Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Consultation – what we have heard• Agencies • Preference for two-way traffic flow system (i.e. West Street) • Consider development bonuses for possible pedestrian links • Encourage more bicycle use • Consider potential weekend library hours • Address issues with development/construction staging: need to develop interim car parking plan • Road safety considerations • Increased use of motorised scooters need consideration • Need for traffic calming • Changing demographics provides opportunities for higher active transport use • Develop “ownership” within community: develop facilities that support community activitiesUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Consultation – what we have heard• Business community • Improvements needed but cannot diminish supply of public parking • Reservations about competition with existing business from additional retail, cafes etc. • General support for civic square • New civic square will need to be directly linked to West Street. • West Street should still have traffic flows. • Better management of traffic at peak timesUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Consultation – what we have heard• General community • No loss of public parking • Concerns about “sale” of public assets by Council . • Better links from centre to the beach • West Street should continue to have street life • Better pedestrian amenity at crossings • Mixed views about desirability of civic square • Concerns about antisocial behaviour in new civic square • If square is to be created it should be larger and support a wide range of events i.e. markets, concerts, movies etc. • Support for improved library facilities • A number of traffic and pedestrian blackspots identified • Support for taking through traffic off West St • Public transport within the village is OK • better amenities at stations and destination points to continue to support use of public transport and cyclingUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Transport and Access• TMAP Overview and Objectives• Key findings and issues• Preliminary transport improvement optionsUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • TMAP Overview and Objectives• Overview • Assessment of transport impacts to identify a package of measures • Consideration of full transport impacts, not just traffic • Measures to include infrastructure and service improvements as well as policy considerations.• Objectives • Identify future transport and access requirements for Village Centre • Integrate master plan of proposed Civic PlaceUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Key Transport Findings – Road Network Semi-grid with well-defined hierarchy Key north-south demand and network patterns within Peninsula Limited east-west connectivity (West Street and Bourke Road)Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Key Transport Findings – Traffic Peak West Street flows in order of 400-500 vehicles per hour Traffic growth in peninsula will likely bring increased conflicts on West Street: West Street is key E-W link West Street is also main centre street Developments on both sides will bring increased pedestrian crossing volumesUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Key Transport Findings – Parking Community places great importance on parking availability Existing Council carpark considered “heart” of village centre Peak parking utilisation surveyed is about 90% of capacity Peak average parking duration surveyed is between 1 to 2 hoursUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Key Transport Findings – Public Transport Existing bus network and services considered good Draft Central Coast Transport Strategy identifies strategic bus corridor on Ocean Beach RoadUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Key Transport Findings – Walking and Cycling Significant active transport opportunity with Peninsula’s flat topography Significant bicycle usage has been documented for Woy Woy station (NSW Bike Plan) Opportunities for linking Village Centre with the beach and beach activities / surf clubs Existing cycle route on Trafalgar Avenue provides external links to north, but does not continue further south to the beach Potential pedestrian safety issues in the future with increased traffic on West Street Existing cycle route issues on West Street (discontinuous: cyclists need to dismount)Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Preliminary Traffic Measures Preference for two-way system of traffic flows in line with overall planning and urban design objectives – one way systems create potential issues with connectivity, safety and urban design Wellington Street as alternative vehicle access/bypass West Street could be designated as High Pedestrian Activity Area with 40 km/h speed limit Scenario modelling undertaken to date used background traffic growth rate to 50% of current levels, with up to 50% of West St through traffic diverting to Wellington St. Required intersection improvements to cater to future traffic with diversion: West St / Ocean Beach Rd – Roundabout West St / Trafalgar Ave – Roundabout with reconfigured pedestrian access and crossing Wellington St / Trafalgar Ave – Convert to roundabout Wellington St / Ocean Beach Rd – Convert to signals with turn lanes; impacts on westbound right turn from Ocean Beach Rd (may require closure).Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Transport Structure• Key traffic routes• Key pedestrian links to beachUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Intersection Improvements – Future(based on 50% growth + 50% diversion scenario) upgrade to signals Consider signalisation of Upgrade to pedestrian crossing roundabout Retain roundabout configuration Retain roundabout configurationUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Preliminary Parking Measures General consensus to maintain existing Council carparking supply Integrate parking provision with Civic Place Master Plan, including rearranged on-street parking along Alfred St and Bullion St. Consider West St bicycle route in on-street parking arrangements. Reconfigure Wellington St to allow more unrestricted on-street parking. Investigate impacts of reduced parking ratio requirements for future village centre developments (e.g. visitor parking for residential uses).Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Parking Install parking information signage Fomalise kerbside parking on Wellington St Integrate Council carpark and Alfred St/ Bullion St kerbside spaces with Civic Place Master PlanConsider bicycle routeand 40 km/hr zoneproposals in reorganisingkerbside spacesMaintain existingrestrictionsUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Preliminary Public Transport Measures Maintain existing bus network and frequencies Consider bus stop consolidation Improve wayfindingUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Preliminary Pedestrian Measures Provide additional/upgraded crossings on Ocean Beach Road (Osborne Ave and Nowack Ave/Wellington St.) Integrate Trafalgar Ave pedestrian crossing with intersection upgrade Provide Wellington St pedestrian refuges (Alfred St, Bullion St) Improve pedestrian links with the beach and surf clubs, via Ocean Beach Rd Trafalgar Ave. Potential supplementary beach link via South St Improve footpaths along Alfred St, Bullion St between West St and Wellington St Improve Civic Place – West St pedestrian link (expand existing walkway) Integrate possible pedestrian links within lot amalgamations for increased permeability Improve east-west pedestrian links: Links to Civic Place (between Ocean Beach Road and Wellington Street) Pedestrian crossings on south side of West St (Berith St, South St)Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Pedestrian improvements Integrate with future Wellington St/ Ocean Beach Rd Possible pedestrian links upgrade Potential raised threshold High Pedestrian Activity Area (40 km/hr zone) Consider future with entry signalisation of markers pedestrian crossingUmina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Preliminary Cycling Measures Progress current bike plan proposals Ocean Beach Rd Trafalgar Ave West St Sydney Ave Improve bike crossing on Wellington St. Formalise bicycle parking facilities in village centre Compliance with DCP111 bike parking requirements for developments.Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Cycling Facilities Existing off- road routeBike Planproposals(on-road) Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
    • Other Preliminary Measures Consider transport improvements to Bourke Rd as key E-W connection in peninsula (e.g. Umina-Ettalong) Potential traffic management diversions for special events (e.g. close West St to traffic on market days).Umina Beach Village TMAP and Civic Place Master Plan
