Have Your Say on upgrades to Sunbury Laneways

Hume City Council is seeking feedback on laneway improvements in Sunbury, a project that will enhance Sunbury laneways and create better connections in the town centre.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said these laneways are currently a blank canvas that do not reflect the atmosphere of Sunbury.

“Laneway improvements will help activate the laneways in the town centre, making them more inviting for the community and an asset that enhances the overall street appeal of the heart of Sunbury centre.

“The consultation period will extend through to the end of January to give the community ample opportunity to share their thoughts during this busy time of year.

“Indicative plans have been prepared to help guide the consultation, both the plans and the extent of works are only preliminary and are subject to change following consultation,” Cr Moore said.

“This project is jointly funded by Hume City Council and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s Growing Suburbs Fund.”

The proposed works include:

  • new asphalt pedestrian paths with feature granite paving
  • landscape works and planting
  • street furniture renewal of new benches and bins
  • improved pedestrian lighting
  • drainage and road improvements, and
  • improved pedestrian crossings.

The works are scheduled to commence in mid 2020 and will continue until late 2020.

Council is offering a range of ways for the community to contribute feedback including:

  • using the Online Feedback Tool by visiting www.hume.vic.gov.au/yoursay
  • a Drop-in session Friday 20 December 2019, Corner Old Bakery Walk and O’Shanassy Street 8–9am and 12–2pm.
  • email assetadmin@hume.vic.gov.au
  • in writing addressed to Sunbury Streetscape Upgrade, Assets Department, 1079 Pascoe Vale Road, Broadmeadows VIC 3047

The consultation period will close on Friday 31 January 2020.
