City Rd plan gets moving

13 Jul 2014

City Rd plan gets moving Image

The City of Melbourne (CoM) has released its findings and summary of the City Rd Consultation, which will form the basis of its City Rd Master Plan, due later this year.

Community responses had already been public on the Participate Melbourne website but now the CoM has collated the results and offered its findings.

The report, City Road Master Plan Community Engagement Summary states the overriding perception is that: “City Rd is an undesirable place to be with 90 per cent of experiences shared by residents being negative and 89 per cent of experiences shared by pedestrians being negative.”

“There is a strong desire to see improvements to City Rd,” the report continued.

The report outlined that the purpose of the community engagement was two fold – to raise awareness for the upcoming plan and gauge community sentiment about the use of the road.

The engagement was unique because it was the first time the council had used an interactive map – a process it said allowed for a qualitative analysis of the issues experienced.

“The data captured allowed for a qualitative analysis of the issues experienced by different users and modes of travel and identification of clusters of negative experiences and problem areas,” the report said.

The report also outlined that 91 of the 182 map interactions were from pedestrians and 120 of them were from local residents.

The report also outlines what is next.

“Information captured through the first phase of community engagement will inform the draft master plan to be released for formal community engagement later in 2014.”
