This consultation has now closed. We are currently reviewing your feedback and preparing the final Public Space Strategy for consideration by Council.

Council has developed a draft Public Space Strategy that provides the vision for the future of public spaces in the City of Port Phillip. The Strategy outlines the challenges, outcomes and actions required to realise the full potential of Port Phillip’s already enviable public space network of parks, gardens, streets, the foreshore, and urban plazas.

The Public Space Strategy is one of Council’s core strategies and delivers on Strategic Direction 4 of the Council Plan ‘We are growing and keeping our character’ and it informs Council’s ongoing planning and investment in public spaces.

The draft Public Space Strategy is available for you to view. We’ve also provided additional information which outlines the actions we are taking to improve our public spaces in the short term in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
