We have developed a Shopping Centre Improvement Plan, which identifies streetscape improvement opportunities at 42 shopping centres across the municipality. 

We are pleased to advise that Kew’s Cotham Village Shopping Centre is the next centre to be considered for improvements.

We are seeking your feedback on the draft concept plan to inform our future works.

The improvements are intended to enhance the shopping centre’s appearance and character and create a safe, functional and pedestrian-friendly environment. It is anticipated these measures will improve user satisfaction and support local businesses by creating an attractive setting for customers to enjoy.

The draft concept plan aims to:

  • create opportunities for longer stays with public spaces for sitting, relaxing and outdoor eating
  • enhance the streetscape appearance with the use of consistent materials and street furniture
  • improve pedestrian amenity with new footpath surfaces, furniture and raised crosswalks at Mary Street and Ridgeway Avenue.

There will be no change to the current number of car parks.
 

Your feedback is important 

Feedback can be provided up to Wednesday 8 April 2020 via:

  • email: [email protected]
  • post: Environment and Sustainable Living, City of Boroondara, Private Bag 1, Camberwell VIC 3124.

Next steps

The proposed works are scheduled for implementation in the 2020/21 financial year and are subject to further detailed design, funding availability and the outcomes of this consultation.
