  • A new park for Abbotsford - Mollison Street (corner of Charles Street)

    25 days ago
    A_new_park_for_abbotsford_visualisation_1

    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) we have produced a draft concept design for a permanent park.

    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.

    Please take a moment to review our flyer (which includes the draft concept design and a list of key features) and have your say by participating in the forum topics below or attending our on-site feedback session from 10.00–11.30am on Saturday 16 July 2016.

  • Enhancing Edinburgh Gardens (Northern Precinct)

    2 months ago
    Eghys

    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.

  • Liveable Yarra Project

    about 1 year ago

    The Liveable Yarra project ran from July - October this year to understand and capture the diversity of views about planning issues, ultimately influencing changes to the Yarra Planning Scheme – the rulebook that guides planning decisions in Yarra.

    These conversations are critical as Melbourne and Yarra continue to grow, change and evolve.

    Council formed a People’s Panel of 60 representatives to drive this conversation. The Panel met over a series of deliberative forums in August and September 2015.

    The final report was presented to Council on the 24th November at the Fitzroy Town Hall. People's Panel advice will be considered through development of policy for the next Yarra Planning Scheme.
