Bonwick Street, Fawkner - Streetscape improvements


Project update

Community engagement on the draft concept design for Bonwick Street Shopping Strip was undertaken for four weeks in October 2018. This engagement process collected a range of opinions, ideas, considerations and concerns from the community.

You can view the Bonwick Street Community Engagement Summary in:

The community engagement has identified community interest in how the design will provide for parking and vehicle movements within Bonwick Street and the adjoining laneways. In response to what we heard from the community we are investigating how we can make some changes to the current draft design. Councillors will consider these
changes at the 12 December Council meeting. 

You can view the next Council meeting agenda  from the Friday evening before the meeting (Friday 7 December). You can also view a copy of the agenda at Council Customer Service Centres and libraries from the Friday afternoon before the meeting. See upcoming Council meeting dates and locations.
