Place making projects

These are large capital upgrade projects that have been identified in a precinct master plan and will generally include substantial changes to the public realm that focus on pedestrian amenity and address the following issues:

  • walkability – creating spaces for pedestrian traffic
  • accessibility – creating spaces which are easily accessible
  • views and vistas – providing clear sight lines
  • visual amenity – creating attractive places to walk, shop, eat and relax
  • kerbside allocation – providing build-outs for dining and gardens, footpath widening
  • landscaping and irrigation – upgrading planting and pavements
  • public art – designing and installing art works to enhance the centre's individual character
  • street furniture – installing seating, shelters, bins, bicycle racks
  • parking – balancing the need for efficient traffic circulation and provision of parking
  • lighting – providing feature lighting and street lighting
  • safety – ensuring the improvements provide a safe environment for all future users of the centre.

These projects are wholly funded by the City of Gold Coast.
