LATMS 1 Princes Hill
In the second half of 2015, Council undertook a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study in the area bounded by Park Street, Princes Park, Macpherson Street and Lygon Street. This area is referred to as LATM 1, Princes Hill Precinct.
The study aimed to address traffic issues in local streets, including traffic speed and volume, through-traffic, safety at intersections, pedestrian and cyclist safety.
Council endorsed a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) for the area at its meeting on 2 February 2016 that addressed traffic issues raised by residents and identified by traffic surveys.
The TMP includes road safety improvements for pedestrian and cyclist routes to the schools in the area and other measures to reduce vehicle speeds. View the plan here:

The plan was developed as part of an extensive consultation process with the community, which included a series of surveys and a public meeting.
A Traffic Study Group comprising community representatives, Ward Councillors, Council officers and consultants from Traffix Group was also established to help develop the plan.
The plan is expected to cost $573,000 to implement over three years. Funding is subject to the Council’s Capital Works Program budget process.
Council also prepared a parking management plan, based on community feedback received through the LATMS 1 consultation in 2015:
