This year we will be undertaking detailed landscape plans to improve the streetscapes, create better public spaces and identify locations for new street trees, garden beds, rubbish/recycle bins and more seating for Plenty Road and High Street, Preston (between Dundas Street and Bell Street). These detailed design plans will allow Council implement the changes over several years starting in 2015/2016.
To help us understand what kind of experience the community want to have in their public environment, a design brainstorm session was held on Wednesday 10 December at Budda Thai. Participants engaged in very enthusiastic conversations around the future look and feel of the JUMP precinct. Street trees species, seating materials, preferred paving and public art themes were discussed throughout the evening. Some residents who were unable make it to the session, contributed their ideas via an online visual noticeboard. You can find a copy of the workshop minutes here.
All of these creative suggestions will now be used to inform the design concepts of the public spaces of the precinct which will be released for further community input during February/March 2015.
