Streets for People Croxton West Place-Making Project

In 2018, Darebin City Council launched Streets for People, an exciting project to transform local street networks in Darebin into more people-friendly places.

We are now in the construction phase for our first two Streets for People projects in Northcote/Thornbury and Northern Reservoir.

For our next study location, the Croxton West Place-making Project, we are now collating your feedback from the latest round of community engagement.

What's happened so far?

The Croxton West Place-making Project includes the study area between Normanby Avenue and Arthurton Road, and Merri Creek and St Georges Road. It also includes the Northcote Green Link and the Great Western Shimmy Streets for People corridors.

The corridor is affected by its proximity to major roads. It has high levels of local walking and cycling activity by people of all ages and abilities moving between homes, train stations and tram stops, creek trails and schools.

The Northcote Green Link route is also being considered for designation as a primary transport cycling route as part of the State Government's Strategic Cycling network. These various transport considerations must be balanced with the need to provide safe and attractive streets for the local community to not only use, but also enjoy and be proud of.

Our draft vision for the Croxton West Place-making Project is:

The Croxton West Local Area will become an inviting and safe place for pedestrians and cyclists, where vehicle volumes and speed are reduced, where improved street tree planting provides amenity value and where spaces are created for passive recreation."

We have received your feedback from two rounds of engagement:

  • October 2020 - identifying issues and opportunities to inform the draft proposals
  • February 2020 - feedback on the draft proposals


What's happening next?

We are now reviewing the feedback from both rounds of engagement to further develop the concept plans.
