The City of Boroondara has developed a Shopping Centre Improvement Plan, which identifies streetscape improvement opportunities at 42 shopping centres across the municipality.
Council is pleased to advise that Surrey Hills Shopping Centre is the next centre to be considered for improvements.
These improvements are intended to enhance the shopping centre’s appearance and character, and create a safe, functional and pedestrian‐friendly environment.
In turn, the local economy will benefit as more shoppers visit the area.
The draft concept design aims to:
- showcase the heritage character of Surrey Hills by using attractive and appropriate signage, materials, furniture and plants
- increase pedestrian safety and amenity by creating raised pedestrian crossings at side streets
- improve streetscape appearance and deter graffiti by potentially commissioning a mural for the Neighbourhood Centre
- encourage longer visits to the area by revitalising the Neighbourhood Centre’s forecourt and potentially providing a public toilet at Croydon Road, subject to community feedback.
We are now seeking your feedback on the draft concept plan to inform our future works at Surrey Hills Shopping Centre.
Your feedback is important
Feedback can be provided until Monday 14 May 2018 via:
