Project overview

Moreland Parklet Program

The Moreland Parklet Program was adopted by Council in June 2017. 

If you are interested in hosting a parklet or are interested in parklets in Moreland, please download the Moreland Parklet Program (PDF 2Mb)

What is a parklet?

A Parklet is a structure which is located within street parking bays.

This little ‘park’ re-purposes part of the street into a space for seating, planting, bicycle parking and art.

Parklets help to add diversity to the street and provide new public spaces. Although Parklets are hosted and maintained by local businesses, they are public space.

There are two streams to the Parklet program. The short-term stream and the long-term stream.

Short-term stream

Businesses nominate to host a Council owned Parklet for 6 months. This option has a small fee involved and is a great way to test whether a Parklet suits your street and your business.  

Our first businesses to host a Council Parklet are Small Block and Bikes Please on Piera Street in Brunswick East. In late November 2016, Council installed a short-term Parklet out the front of both business on Piera Street which will be in place until July 2017.    

Short-term parklet rounds  

Applications have now closed for the July 2017 / January 2018 short-term parklet round. 

If you are interested in hosting a short term parklet in the January 2018 / July 2018 round then please complete the parklet assessment below. If your site is deemed to be suitable, you will be invited to submit a Site Proposal. 

Long-term stream

Businesses apply to Council to organise the design, construction and maintenance of their own Parklet. This can be installed in a parking space out the front of the business for 1 year with the option to renew the permit annually.

Applications are now open for long-term parklets in Moreland. If you are interested in hosting a long-term parklet then please complete the parklet assessment below. If your site is deemed to be suitable, you will be invited to submit a Site Proposal.
