Council is proposing to deliver streetscape improvements in Blackall Street as part of its Streetscape Capital Works Program. The project team are seeking ideas and feedback from the community to develop recommendations for the design of the street, and priorities for its improvement.

Purpose

Council is seeking the Woombye community’s ideas to help develop a concept plan for Blackall Street that will be presented for community feedback in February 2020. Council has committed $75,000 this financial year (2020/21) for planning and design work and $450,000 next financial year (2021/22) for construction of the streetscape in Woombye, subject to future capital works budget approval.

Community engagement Stage 1 Values and Vision

In November this year we engaged with the Woombye community to understand what you love about Blackall Street and what can be improved.

As part of the engagement, a total of 225 people had their say to create a vision for the street.

The community were invited to have their say at a number of engagement events including a sausage sizzle at the School of Arts Hall and a ‘cheers and ideas’ event at the Woombye Pub.

Feedback received is helping us develop recommendations that will inform a Draft Streetscape Design which you will be able to provide further feedback on early next year.

A community streetscape workshop is also proposed to take place in March 2021 where the community can provide further input to shape the streetscape design. More information about upcoming engagement is coming soon.

What you have told us so far

Where to from here

Your feedback will be used to form recommendations about:

  • Ways in which the street can be improved through streetscaping
  • The types of streetscape elements that are desired
  • The area/s of the street where improvements could be focused
  • The special aspects of the street that should be cherished and preserved
  • The desired look and feel of the street.

There is still time to have your say

A community streetscape workshop is proposed to take place in March 2021 where the community can provide further input to shape the streetscape design.

A draft streetscape design will be presented in early 2021 as part of Stage 2 ‘Have we got it right’ with an opportunity for the community to provide further feedback.

Final designs will be produced for these streetscape improvements, with construction anticipated to occur in the 2021-22 financial year.

Overview

Funded through the Streetscape Capital Works Program, council seeks to design and deliver a streetscape upgrade for Blackall Street through a placemaking process.

Placemaking is an approach to engage and collaborate with communities to create meaningful and vibrant places that reflect their values.
