As part of the City of Whittlesea’s Town Centre Revitalisation Program we will improve the Alexander Avenue shops streetscape and Nick Ascenzo Reserve. Working with our stakeholders we aim to improve accessibility and safety of the shops and lift the quality of the area by improving the streetscape, road network and introducing more activities, and improving environmental outcomes.

The draft concept plan for the Alexander Avenue Streetscape has been informed by community feedback captured during phase 1 consultation in August 2022. We had feedback from 144 participants. You can see the results of this consultation in the engagement summary available in the document library below.

Project FAQs

There will be a loss of one parking space to the precinct. Traffic and parking studies completed earlier in the year indicated that there was always vacant parking spaces in the precinct.

The large triangle grass area is on privately owned land. We would like to improve this space for the whole community and traders, however, we will need to work with the property owners to determine the extent of works.

Public amenity lighting is included, and will be concentrated around car parks and pedestrian areas to improve public safety.

The design proposes seating, public furniture and planting inbetween parking bays and shopfronts. These items will assist in blocking vehicles beyond the road and car parks.

Tree planting and structures are restrcited due to the high voltage over head power lines. We will work with the service authority to achieve the best outcome possible for trees and shade.

We will work closely with traders during construction to ensure that their businesses can remain open as per usual, and access is maintained during business operating hours.
