Precinct 1: Civic and Community


Recommendations

Built Form

  • Preferred building heights ranging between 15m and 29m, with mandatory Floor Area Ratio controls ranging between 3:1 and 4.5:1

Streetscape

  • Improved pedestrian crossing directly connecting Hall Street and Alexandra Avenue

Mt Alexander Road

  • Opportunity to expand public open space along the central median of Mt Alexander Rd, including increased tree planting to create a boulevard. This will require the removal of car parking on the southern part of the central median.
  • 60 km/hr down to 40km/hr along Mt Alexander Rd and Pascoe Vale Road
  • One-way separated bike lanes on either side of Mt Alexander Rd, north and southbound
  • More bicycle racks/hoops

Kellaway Avenue

  • Removal of on-street car parking on the north side of Kellaway Avenue to make room for bicycle lanes
  • Widened central median along Kellaway Avenue, including continuous and consistent larger canopy tree planting
  • Improved pedestrian safety through the use of ‘smart intersections’ on either end of Kellaway Avenue
  • 50km/hr down to 30km/hr along Kellaway Avenue

We want to know if you agree and if you have any other ideas. What would you like to see in the future Civic and Community precinct?
