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 $295,000 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 proposed playful ground plane patterning are to be delivered through this project. A new drinking fountain with a dog bowl facility will also be installed.

Thank you to all those who contributed their ideas, stories and local insights at the project information kiosk as part of the Wilston Village Festival on Sunday 8 December 2019. This feedback, along with the information gathered from the online survey that closed on Sunday 15 December 2019, will assist Council in understanding what the community thinks is important in their neighbourhood and will inform the improvement proposal for the Wilston local shopping precinct.
Construction is planned to begin in early-to-mid-2020. Council will consult with each business in the precinct to ensure minimal disruption occurs during construction. Access to every shop in the Wilston Village precinct will be maintained during business hours.
The Wilston Village Precinct Grant Project is expected to be completed by mid-2020, providing increased day and night-time amenity and identity for the local shopping precinct.
