Council is currently planning to beautify, green and upgrade the pedestrian realm in Keilor Road’s Niddrie business area. The Keilor Road Streetscape Plan focuses on the public pedestrian area in Keilor Road, from Elstone Court to Graves Street. It proposes a pedestrian oriented streetscape design to support the creation of a vibrant and attractive business area that forms one of the anchors of the healthy, walkable and lively neighbourhood.

In 2019, Council collected ideas from the community about how the business area might look and feel in the future. The findings from the community consultation have informed the Draft Keilor Road Streetscape Plan which can be found in the Document Library on this page.

The Plan proposes a range of improvements to ensure the area is vibrant, pedestrian friendly and supports an active business area for Niddrie. Some of the improvements proposed include:

  • Increased tree canopy cover and greening
  • Increased garden planting
  • Upgraded footpath and pedestrian crossing
  • Upgraded street furniture

The Community Consultation has now closed on 28 July and the feedback is currently been compiled. The findings will be available on Your Say shortly.

We recognised that this is a difficult time with pandemic restrictions. If we find that the community is not able to respond in this period, we will undertake further engagement as necessary, later in the year.
