There are many proven benefits of placemaking, with successful projects having taken place locally and all around the world.

Placemaking can:

  • create empowered and engaged communities
  • stimulate economic growth
  • enhance social interaction
  • improve environmental sustainability.

The Boroondara Community Plan 2017-27 sets out the 10-year vision for our future based on the values, aspirations and priorities our community told us were important to them.

Placemaking will play an important role in delivering the overall vision and key strategic objectives of the Boroondara Community Plan by improving our public spaces in line with its main themes.
