Wilston Village 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 Wilston Village project, Council helps support and deliver infrastructure which enhances and celebrates neighbourhood centres.
Kedron Brook Business Group delivery partnership
The Wilston Village Precinct Grant Project seeks to celebrate the local character, enhance the night-time presence and improve the amenity of Wilston’s local shopping precinct.
With funding support from the Australian Government and Brisbane City Council, and working closely with the Kedron Brook Business Group, Council will help support and deliver the $315,000 revitalisation project. The improvements will help to create an inviting and distinctive centre.
Artist-designed panelled balustrades with creative lighting for added night-time visual impact and playful ground plane patterning are to be delivered through this project. A new drinking fountain with a dog bowl facility and urban stools will also be installed.
Community consultation and engagement
Council invited the community to contribute their ideas, stories and local insights in late 2019 and this feedback has informed the improvement proposal and creative outcomes for the Wilston local shopping precinct.

Construction and installation
Construction is planned to start mid-September 2020 and expected to be completed by late 2020, weather permitting.
Construction will primarily take place between 7pm-5am, Sunday to Thursday. These works will be undertaken at night when traffic volumes are lowest to ensure the safety of motorists and workers, and to minimise traffic and business disruptions.
Properties near the works may experience some construction noise, dust and vibration, however every effort will be made to minimise impacts on the local community. Especially noisy works, such as concrete saw cutting, will be completed prior to 10pm where possible. Due to workplace health and safety requirements, reversing beepers cannot be switched off.
Access to businesses will be maintained during opening hours to ensure normal operation can continue where possible.
Council is committed to keeping local residents and businesses informed of construction activities in their area.
We would like to thank local residents and businesses in advance for their patience and understanding during construction of these works.
