Paddington Terraces Precinct Grant Project

Brisbane City Council, through the Village Precinct Projects program, is working with local communities to create great places with vibrant neighbourhood centres and improved amenity for the local community and visitors to use and enjoy. Through grant-funded precinct projects like the Paddington Terraces project, Council helps support and deliver infrastructure which enhances and celebrates neighbourhood centres.

Paddington 4064 delivery partnership

The Paddington Terraces Precinct Grant Project seeks to celebrate the local character, enhance the night-time presence and improve the amenity of the centre.

With funding support from the Australian Government and working closely with the Paddington 4064 business group, Council will help support and deliver the $300,000 infrastructure improvement project. This will help create an inviting and distinctive centre.

Delivered improvements

The Paddington Terraces project has delivered warm white energy-efficient LED bud lighting to 31 street trees along Given and Latrobe terraces to improve night-time amenity. The street tree bud lighting, switched on at the Paddington Christmas Festival, has created a vibrant neighbourhood and identity for the local shopping precinct.

Other opportunities being investigated include mural artworks and creative projection installations.

Community consultation and engagement

The community was invited to share their views and provide feedback on the public space improvements for the centre at the Paddington Christmas Festival.

Council is analysing the information gathered from the onsite project information kiosk at the Paddington Christmas Festival and the online survey, which closed on Sunday 15 December 2019. Feedback will assist Council in understanding what the community thinks is important in their neighbourhood and will inform the improvement proposal for the Paddington Terraces precinct.

Next steps

The Paddington Terraces Village Precinct Grant Project is expected to be completed by June 2020, providing increased day and night-time amenity and identity for the local neighbourhood centre.

Council will consult with each business adjacent to any construction as part of the project. Access to businesses will be maintained during business hours.
