Explore our draft Glenferrie Place Plan

Your Glenferrie Place Plan is here, shaped by the voices of more than 1,700 community members.

The draft Glenferrie Place Plan is the product of extensive community feedback, research and analysis – and charts a visionary roadmap for revitalising the Glenferrie precinct in Hawthorn. 

In it are nine proposed initiatives to help achieve the community’s collective vision, building on what makes Glenferrie unique and ensuring it thrives well into the future. 

Initiatives range from urban greening and sustainable transport, to arts events and smart technology, sports and recreation. Each initiative aims to enhance the public realm, support a thriving local economy, and create a vibrant, people-focused precinct. 

You’ll find longer-term initiatives, and others to be delivered in the short term, like revitalisation of the laneways around Glenferrie Station to offer an imaginative and memorable experience. Revitalising our iconic Glenferrie Road shopping strip – which community members told us is the ‘heart of Hawthorn’ – is a major part of the plan.

Explore the draft Place Plan, including detailed before-and-after artist impressions, timelines and concept maps on Engage Boroondara, and give your feedback by 7 December.
