Wangaratta Street Park Upgrade

Consultation has concluded

Council is planning to upgrade Wangaratta Street Park in Richmond.

Earlier this year, we asked the community to share their ideas for making the park a more enjoyable place to spend time.

We received about 100 responses and also held a workshop to develop a design concept in collaboration with the local community.

During the consultation, we heard that people support:

  • Grassy areas in the park
  • More comfortable seating
  • Expanding the size of the park.

Next steps

The project team has been considering the design options and the impact they would have on local people and how they use the area. Specifically, we have been looking at:

  • Parking
  • Vehicle access in local streets
  • Pedestrian routes
  • The project budget.

This information will be presented at a Council meeting so that councillors can consider the various impacts and make a decision on how to proceed.

This is expected to happen in mid-September 2017.

Once Council decides how to proceed, there will be additional community consultation and opportunities for local people to provide feedback on the design concept.
