The Maling Road Precinct placemaking project is now underway.

Placemaking involves reimagining spaces, inspiring possibilities and trialling new ideas to create vibrant places where our community feels a sense of belonging.

Over the next 6 weeks, we will be out on the street and at various community events to learn about what makes Maling Road unique, what improvements could be made and how it might evolve in the future.

We want to demonstrate what is possible. So, we’ve planned an exciting schedule of creative activities to spark your imagination. We encourage you to come down and share your vision for the Maling Road Precinct whilst enjoying the fantastic creative activities on offer. 

We will be on-site at the following locations and times:
