Darra Village Precinct Project

Brisbane City Council is working with the local community to revitalise the neighbourhood shopping precinct at Darra, along Railway Parade and Darra Station Road, as part of the Village Precinct Projects program.

We're committing $750,000 to the improvement project, which aims to:

  • enhance the amenity, connection and safety for local residents and visitors to the centre
  • contribute to and encourage local economic development
  • increase the community's sense of place at this neighbourhood centre.

Proposed improvements

Proposed improvements include:

  • footpath upgrades to improve accessibility, maintenance and visual amenity
  • improving pedestrian safety by upgrading existing crossing points
  • tree planting to improve visual and physical amenity while providing shade
  • groundcover plantings to new and existing garden beds
  • standard and unique street furniture
  • placemaking opportunities derived from community engagement.

Community consultation and engagement

The local community is encouraged to become involved in the planning for the revitalisation proposal by providing feedback about the local centre.

We are currently analysing the information gathered from the onsite project information kiosk and online survey, which closed on Sunday 13 October 2019. Feedback will assist Council in understanding what the community thinks is important in their neighbourhood and will inform the improvement proposal for the Darra local shopping precinct.
