Design King William - Concept Design

Consultation has concluded. Your views will further inform the final design to be presented to Council on 27 August, 2018.

Over the past three months, we have received an overwhelming response from the local community, traders and visitors on how to best transform King William Road into an appealing destination that provides greater opportunities for all ages to live, work and play in the precinct.

The majority of feedback has centred on a clear vision for an active, accessible and stylish street where residents and visitors can browse, shop and spend quality time with friends and family in leafy surrounds.

After more than 450 conversations, we have arrived at a preferred design concept that meets the community’s desire for lush

Over the past three months, we have received an overwhelming response from the local community, traders and visitors on how to best transform King William Road into an appealing destination that provides greater opportunities for all ages to live, work and play in the precinct.

The majority of feedback has centred on a clear vision for an active, accessible and stylish street where residents and visitors can browse, shop and spend quality time with friends and family in leafy surrounds.

After more than 450 conversations, we have arrived at a preferred design concept that meets the community’s desire for lush green spaces, more pedestrian crossings and highlights to heritage buildings.

The concept also includes repaving the road surface, parking spaces and footpaths, to preserve King William Road’s distinctive village character, with spaces that can switch between on-street parking, temporary outdoor retail and event spaces or alfresco dining spots, should retail tenancies change.

This design will cause a small reduction in on-street parking. Feedback from traders and the wider community has indicated a preparedness to accept slightly fewer parking spaces if a transformed King William Road stimulates deliberate activity, increases business and provides greater open space, colour and quality.

Council is committed to ensuring the final design can be delivered with minimum disruption to traders. Upon completion, we will also work with landlords to raise awareness about accessibility and capacity of the many off-street car parks available around King William Road.

You are now invited to make comment on this preferred design concept. Your views will further inform the final design to be presented to Council on 27 August, 2018.
