We're looking at ways to make this pocket of Richmond greener, safer and more vibrant for our community.

This popular and busy part of the Richmond Town Hall precinct is home to a community of businesses, sporting clubs and schools.

Project update – November 2021

Thanks to everyone who had their say on improving Richmond’s Gleadell Street.

We had a fantastic response. Over 380 people from a broad cross section of the Yarra community shared their thoughts and ideas with us, including residents, businesses and visitors.

What’s next?

Your feedback is now being independently reviewed by Chatterbox Projects, who is preparing an engagement report. We will share this report with you in early 2022.

Later in 2022, councillors will consider a council report about whether to continue with any design work for Gleadell Street, including further community and market stallholder engagement.

How we might improve Gleadell Street

There are opportunities to improve and transform this special place by:

  • increasing greenery and shade by planting more trees
  • creating safer areas for pedestrians and bike riders
  • providing high quality spaces
  • making it a place where the Gleadell Street Market can thrive into the future.

Some food for thought

To get the conversation started, we've developed two ideas for your feedback:

You can also see how the street might look on market day.
