Places for People: Public Space Strategy

Our vision is to create a well connected network of public spaces for all people that nurture and support the health, wellbeing, social connection, creative expressions, economy and environment of our community.

The Places for People: Public Space Strategy 2022-32 sets the vision and blueprint for the future of our public spaces in the City of Port Phillip.

It is one of Council's core strategies and delivers on the Liveable Strategic Direction of the Council Plan 2021-31.

The Strategy outlines the challenges, outcomes and actions required to realise the full potential of our already enviable public space network of parks, gardens, streets, the foreshore, and urban spaces. The strategy comprises three volumes and includes an Action Plan to guide Council’s investment in
public spaces across the City of Port Phillip over the next 10 years.
