Martha Street Camp Hill Village Precinct Project


Brisbane City Council is working with the local community to revitalise the Martha Street, Camp Hill neighbourhood shopping precinct. This is part of the Village Precinct Projects program (VPP) and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.

We’re committing up to $1 million to the improvement project, which aims to:

  • enhance the amenity, connections and safety for residents and visitors to the centre
  • contribute to and encourage local economic growth
  • increase the community’s sense of place and pride in this neighbourhood centre.

Community consultation and engagement

The local community is encouraged to become involved in the planning for improvements to the Martha Street, Camp Hill precinct by providing feedback on the proposed opportunities.

During August 2021, Council released an opportunities proposal containing potential improvements for the precinct, based on your ideas and suggestions from our first stage of consultation in May 2021.

Key areas for improvement the community highlighted included:

  • traffic safety and pedestrian access
  • landscaping, footpath upgrades and street furniture for streetscape and amenity
  • improved parking conditions throughout the centre.

We invited your feedback on the opportunities proposal through an information kiosk and online survey. Community consultation on the opportunities proposal closed on Sunday 5 September 2021.

Thank you for sharing your feedback and this will inform the development of the final improvement plan for Martha Street, Camp Hill Village Precinct Project, to be released in early 2022.
