    Council is considering the creation of a new permanent ‘pocket park’ in Mollison Street (at the corner of Charles Street) in Abbotsford to enhance the liveability of a neighbourhood traditionally lacking in open space.

    Following earlier rounds of community consultation (including online feedback, community workshops and a trial park at the site) a draft concept design for a permanent park was out for consultation during July 2016.

    Feedback received so far indicates that overall the community is generally in support of a new park in Abbotsford, however some people have concerns. The draft design aims to respond to these in a constructive way.

    Thank you for those who participated so far. Stay tuned for further news!

  • Enhancing Edinburgh Gardens (Northern Precinct)

    We’re calling for ideas on the best ways to improve Edinburgh Gardens (Northern Precinct) to meet current and future community needs.

    International House is in poor condition and no longer fit for purpose. It will therefore be demolished along with the associated carpark, making this the perfect opportunity to re-imagine and revitalise this space.

    Other considerations include the need to upgrade the playground (which is nearing the end of its useful life) and to begin exploring potential new uses for the Emely Baker Building (which will soon be vacated).

    Your feedback will help inform a draft concept for the site, which will then be brought back to the community for further comment and refinement.

    Stage 1 consultation is now complete. Stay tuned for further opportunities to have your say.
