Building a better Domain

10 Jul 2019

Building a better Domain Image

The City of Port Phillip has completed its consultation with the community on its vision for urban renewal in the Domain Precinct.

As a direct continuation of Southbank Village from Dorcas St through to Albert Rd, the Domain Precinct Public Realm Masterplan shapes as an important guiding vision for our community more broadly.

With consultation having ended on Wednesday, May 29, the City of Port Phillip said that it received “fantastic feedback” from 74 survey responses and a community workshop at Seasons Botanic Gardens on May 25, which 35 people attended. Council said that the engagement shed light on some recurring themes in the precinct, including:

  • the importance of greening the precinct;
  • balancing the needs of vehicles, pedestrians and bike riders, including the consideration of traffic and on-street parking;
  • improving streetscapes, including consistent and flush paving, more lighting and amenities;
  • better and more accessible pedestrian connections, particularly across Kings Way;
  • ensuring shared spaces are safe and useable; and
  • a desire to plant mature trees, with better maintenance and care.

The feedback will now be incorporated into the draft plan, which will be released for public exhibition on July 18. An information session will be held in July.
