BNE Local and Liveable – Corrie Street, Chermside

Corrie Street in Chermside is one of three projects in the second year of the BNE Local and Liveable program. After an initial eight-week installation period, community feedback and a site evaluation will help to determine what happens with the project elements and site transition.

To identify potential activation ideas and help shape the development of an initial site plan, Council undertakes a site assessment to understand opportunities and constraints. BNE Local and Liveable year two projects will test new in place engagement activities with local residents, community groups and businesses.

About the project area

The project area will focus on the Corrie Street suburban centre between Hamilton Road and Mylne Street. The goal for the BNE Local and Liveable Corrie Street project is to demonstrate the design values as laid out in Council’s Design-led City Strategy, including providing greenspace for people, wildlife and diversity, creating comfortable human experiences and offering an inclusive sense of place.
