Seven Hills Village Precinct Project
In late 2020 Brisbane City Council completed a $1.2 million revitalisation project at The Corso, Seven Hills as part of the Village Precinct Projects program (VPP).
The project was part of Council's commitment to creating a city of neighbourhoods and improving the amenity of local retail villages with better paths, trees, gardens and seating.
- footpath upgrades to improve accessibility, maintenance and visual amenity
- street greening, including street tree planting to improve visual and physical amenity and limit the urban heat island effect
- groundcover plantings to new and existing garden beds
- inclusion of new unique seating and standard Council street furniture
- new seating nodes and improved connections to the Seven Hills Hub.
The Village Precinct Projects program is specifically for placemaking, amenity and character enhancements to neighbourhood centres.
Community consultation and engagement
The local community was encouraged to become involved in the planning for the revitalisation proposal by providing feedback about the Seven Hills VPP, online and at the drop-in kiosk held on-site in September 2019.
The information gathered from the onsite information kiosk and online survey assisted Council to understand what the community felt was important in their neighbourhood and informed the final improvement plan for The Corso local shopping precinct.
The Corso Makers Market was held on Friday 7 May 2021 to celebrate the completion of the VPP in the precinct with Brisbane's favourite handmade designers and artists to showcase their works and products at this local makers market at The Corso.
