Looking at Carlton North’s streets
In December 2019 and January 2020, we spoke to the community about some ideas for Carlton North's streets.
These ideas were part of a draft Local Area Place-Making plan, which we created using initial ideas from the community as well as independent traffic advice.
We have listened to your ideas and concerns, and received very mixed feedback from more than more than 300 people who live, work and spend time in Carlton North.
All in all, we received an enormous volume of feedback: more than 800 comments at two pop-up information sessions and through our interactive online map. We're inspired to see this level of enthusiasm. The people of Carlton North clearly care a lot about this community.
Thank you to everyone who contributed. This consultation period has now closed.
We're evaluating this feedback, along with input from our local area study group and advice from independent traffic consultants, to develop the final plan for Carlton North.
The final plan needs to balance many complex needs. It needs to make sure that these streets remain nice to live in, while also making sure all kinds of transport users can easily and safely get around.
The final plan will be considered for formal adoption at a Council Meeting early this year.
How did we develop the draft Local Area Place-Making plan?
Before the plan was made, we spoke to the community in August and September 2019 about Carlton North’s streets: What helps you get to where you need to go? What makes you feel safe? And what makes these streets a nice place to be?
These two rounds of feedback have helped us create better streets and spaces for our community. We used this information, along with advice from independent traffic experts and a local area study group, to come up with some potential solutions. See what people said.
What was in the draft plan?
