Tactical urbanism

A new aspect of urban renewal and place making recently introduced to the city is tactical urbanism, which will allow small scale, incremental improvements at low cost.

Tactical urbanism - Paradise Point, Falkinder Avenue

In 2007, Centre Improvement Program (CIP) carried out a major upgrade to improve the streetscape amenity at Paradise Point.

A section of Falkinder Avenue between Grice Avenue and Community Lane was not included in the original work and in 2015, Cr Caldwell requested an upgrade to this section of Falkinder Avenue. Design elements from the original CIP project have been incorporated into this project.
