Local liveable streets

 A bike and a planter box on a sunny street.

We want to make Yarra’s streets as liveable and as enjoyable as possible. 

Improving local streets as liveable and dynamic spaces is important in supporting resilient communities and providing a lasting legacy for future generations.

A number of policies and strategies are already in place to improve and activate local streets.

The Local Liveable Streets document builds on these policies and provides high level principles for achieving good design in local streets.

There are many ways that the community can initiate ideas and achieve positive change in their local streets. We will provide further details here in the coming months about how you can involved.
