Ayr Street benefits from the art of placemaking
Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said the strip has been transformed into an attractive, well-planned space with landscaping and greening to improve community connection and accessibility.
“It’s already gathered great feedback, with many residents saying it’s revitalised the shopping strip and feels more welcoming,” he said.
Cr Conlon said the upgrade came about from a local trader wanting to extend their outdoor dining area.
“We recognised the innovative idea and revitalised the whole centre as part of our placemaking and capital works project,” he said.
An official launch and street celebration including a street performer and treats from local business Kat’s Cakes will be held once restrictions allow.
The upgrade is funded through the Victorian Government Local Councils Outdoor Eating and Entertainment Package (LGA Stream) Round 1 to develop more useable community spaces for our post-covid recovery.
