Peterborough Streetscape


Council together with the Peterborough Residents Group are working in partnership to complete design plans and costings for streetscape improvements for main centre of the town of Peterborough. 

The project will focus on the main retail and business area along Macs Road between Blair and Irvine Streets, and Irvine Street from the Great Ocean Road to the James Irvine Monument car park.  The plans and costings will be used for budget allocations and to source funding support for the upgrade works.

What will the Plan consider?

Development of plans to include the following design considerations:

  • Maintenance and renewal of any installations given the coastal location and conditions
  • Street tree planting and streetscape landscaping / shading
  • Street lighting, furniture and signage including interpretative and directional signage
  • Protection and retention of views, vistas and open spaces
  • Parking and pedestrian treatments to improve accessibility and safety
  • Provide guidance on key / critical engineering issues associated with proposed works.
