About Village Precinct Projects
A Village Precinct Project is funded by Brisbane City Council to deliver improvements to the precinct's overall attractiveness, amenity, safety, accessibility and identity. Collectively, these elements improve the commercial vitality of the precinct.
Expected improvements may include:
A uniform suite of furniture improves the centres' functionality and comfort. The standard suite includes new seats, bins, bike racks, drinking fountains and balustrades, where required.
Footpath upgrades result in a high quality, robust and attractive pavement that improves pedestrian connectivity, safety and comfort.
Street trees and gardens
Planting street trees and garden beds provides shade and creates a 'green' buffer between pedestrians and vehicular traffic. Planting creates a colourful and pleasant setting for outdoor dining and an inviting place to meet, shop and socialise.
Public art enhances character and identity, and creates a focal point for the community.
Tailored activation events enhance the sense of place and ownership, and may encourage local economic development by encouraging the community and visitors to the precinct.
Minor civil works
Where required, new pedestrian medians, kerb ramps, tactiles and the realignment of kerbs to improve centre accessibility and safety.
