Residents are invited to a community workshop to help create a more climate responsive streetscape in Highgate Hill.
Hampstead Road is an excessively wide local street that could be redesigned to create more greenspace and improve active travel connections without impacting traffic flow. This proposal was first raised by Kurilpa Futures and West End Community Association in their Green Space Strategy which was produced through a series of community engagement projects.
I’ve secured funding to kick this project off with a concept design to be produced by Council later this financial year. The goal of this workshop is to determine what the community’s priorities for this project are. I will feed these results back to the Council designers to try and ensure they deliver a concept design that is in alignment with community expectations.
The project goals are:
- Create new greenspace
- Provide protected bike lanes
- Minimise parking loss
- Retain traffic flow
Come along to hear more about this project and bounce ideas with your local community. We will provide tea, coffee, and morning tea snacks.

We acknowledge the Jagera and Turrbal peoples as the traditional custodians and rightful owners of the lands on which we gather. Sovereignty over this place has never been ceded and restitution for historical and ongoing colonial occupation has yet to be realised.
