Your Street, Your Say

Your Street, Your Say is your opportunity to have a say about how we can make local streets safer and more enjoyable.

The future of your street

We’re changing our approach to addressing local transport issues. The Your Street, Your Say project is your opportunity to tell us how we can improve local streets for people who live, work, study or travel through Darebin.

We will use your feedback to prepare a comprehensive plan to improve streets with things like pedestrian crossings, street closures, bike lanes, planting and changes to street layouts. This way we can make changes in a holistic way and avoid unintended flow-on effects.

Kicking off in Group A

We started in Group A which includes Reservoir West, Preston West and Thornbury West. From 12 October 2021 until 6 December 2021 you told us about your experience of walking, cycling, scooting, driving or playing in local streets in Group A.

Your feedback about your experience of walking, cycling, scooting, driving and playing in your local streets helped us make a plan to solve the key issues you raised, in the places they are most needed.

The plan includes improvements like pedestrian crossings, street closures, bike lanes, planting and changes to street layouts.

Let us know if you agree with the plan to improve your local streets by completing the survey by 10 July 2022.

Visit the Your Street, Your Say website to look at the plan or you can see it at one of our Customer Service Centres.

Please contact us for a hard copy of the survey.
