Help shape the future of your favourite places
What is Placemaking?
‘Placemaking’ is about creating a collection of places with distinct character and style. Think unique destinations that spark joy, that feeling of being connected to an area, your favourite places.
Placemaking embraces the ideas, energy and capital of the local community and works closely with the people who live, work and play there to create unique precincts and places across the city. At the heart of placemaking is the idea that the people who use the space are the ones who are best placed to plan its future development.
Ever-changing Fitzroy Street is one of Melbourne’s favourite destinations, loved by many for its diversity, lively street life and history as a bohemian playground.
Eclectic Clarendon Street, its surrounding areas and the South Melbourne Market combine to create a vibrant neighbourhood that’s a favourite among locals and visitors.
