Council wants to learn more about community needs and expectations for the Collins Place shopping strip, Kilsyth.

Your suggestions of opportunities and priorities will support the development of a streetscape plan. In a streetscape plan, large infrastructure such as shelters, toilets, and play equipment will not be included.

Changes in activity over the past two years, including the Temporary Carpark Dining Program, have allowed community to experience our local shopping strips in a different way. Collins Place, Kilsyth was a great example of this.

Local shopping strips play an important role in neighbourhoods; they provide convenience, business and employment opportunities as well as community spaces for connections. They can also be part of our local identity.

Currently, there is no funding allocated to deliver immediate changes. Creating a streetscape plan will help us determine priorities for the community and seek funding to deliver improvements in the future.

At this stage, things Council can influence or change include;

  • Landscaping
  • Footpaths and walkways
  • Accessibility
  • Street furniture
  • Signage
  • Lighting
  • Drainage
  • Bike facilities
  • Gathering spaces
  • Parking and traffic flow

Large infrastructure will not be considered in this plan, including;

  • Toilets
  • Shelters & BBQ areas
  • Play equipment
