Reimagining Victoria Street

Yarra Council is working to make Victoria Street a safer, more attractive and welcoming place for all.

Victoria Street in Richmond is a vibrant dining, shopping and cultural destination. However, the area also faces challenges in relation to public safety, liveability, community connectedness and economic prosperity, often the result of drug-related activity.

The issues in Victoria Street are difficult and complex. Addressing them will take a collaborative effort from the all levels of government, Victoria Police, health service providers and the community.

That's why we're asking you to share your experiences of living, working and visiting Victoria Street and the surrounding area, and your ideas for making it a safer, more attractive and welcoming place for all.

This consultation is the first step in what we hope will be a process for positive change. Your contributions will help us develop a series of recommendations that will guide Council’s ongoing work and advocacy for improving Victoria Street.

We're seeking your feedback by Friday 3 March 2017.

Get involved
