Help shape improvements to the heart of Wattle Glen

Council has commenced a project to work with the community to consider and plan for improvements to the public spaces (also called the “public realm”) within the heart of Wattle Glen.

Examples of public spaces are footpaths, trails, parkland and road reserves.

The indicative study area for the project is within a red dashed box shown in a map provided. Click here to access or see below.

Key aims of this project are to plan for:

  • Improved connections and accessibility, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists, between key destinations. For example, between the train station and Pepper’s Paddock.
  • Enhancements to the public spaces which better reflect and promote the preferred character of Wattle Glen.

The project only proposes to plan design improvements to public places within the heart of Wattle Glen and will not consider changes to existing planning controls.

Engagement with the community is the key to success and a first round of public engagement for the project.

We’d like your input into better understanding how we can:

  • Reinforce what you identify as positively characterising Wattle Glen
  • Provide safer, more comfortable and connected ways of moving around the heart of Wattle Glen
  • Ensure sustainability is central to everything we do
