Swan Street is the heart of Richmond’s dining and entertainment precinct, and a special place for locals and visitors alike.

We want to make sure Swan Street stays a great place to work, visit and live, so we're creating new streetscape masterplan for the area.

A plan for better public spaces

The streetscape masterplan will look at improving the public spaces along Swan Street, from Punt Road to Birrarung (the Yarra River). This includes things like:

  • footpaths
  • trees and landscaping
  • outdoor dining and seating
  • public art
  • bike parking
  • kerb outstands
  • connections to public transport
  • safety and accessibility for pedestrians.
What's not included?

The streetscape masterplan will only look at publicly owned land along Swan Street and its immediate surrounds, such as footpaths and street spaces. It does not consider private development or land, nor building heights.

It also doesn't include designing train stations and tram stops, or recommending changes to the traffic and transport function of Swan Street.
