Lumley Street, Upper Mt Gravatt Village Precinct Project

Brisbane City Council completed the $716,000 streetscape improvement project in April 2023 to revitalise the Lumley Street, Upper Mt Gravatt neighbourhood shopping precinct.

Working with the local community, Council has delivered an attractive, comfortable and connected centre for locals and visitors to use and enjoy.

This is part of the Village Precinct Projects program (VPP) and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.

Community consultation and engagement

The local community was consulted and involved in the planning for improvements to the Lumley Street, Upper Mt Gravatt precinct during the initiation phase of the project in early 2022 and again during the planning phase, by providing feedback on the concept plan, in mid-2022.

Council now invites the community to provide feedback on the completed centre improvements. Please complete the online survey by 11.59pm, Sunday 28 May 2023.

Delivered improvements

Improvements include:

  • upgrading the footpath, including the installation of new tactile ground surface indicators to improve accessibility, maintenance and amenity in and around the centre
  • installing on-street accessible parking bay with kerb ramps and upgraded Telstra phone booth for improved accessibility and connectivity
  • additional street tree and garden bed planting to improve visual and physical amenity and to limit the urban heat island effect
  • new seating areas and the installation of custom and standard Council street furniture including bench seats, bins and bike racks
