Project update

During February, we asked you to share your visions and ideas for Were Street, Montmorency to help us deliver a new streetscape for this much-loved shopping strip.

We received a total of 494 survey responses with some great ideas and recurring themes coming through.

Your feedback has provided a great picture of how you would like this area to look, feel and function. We are now developing some concept designs and look forward to presenting them for your thoughts in the coming months.

The consultation findings are available in the Were Street Streetscape Plan Community Engagement Report.

About Were Street

Were Street, Montmorency is a small neighbourhood activity centre running the length of Were Street, with a small number of shops located just off the main street. Were Street is a popular strip with a mix of retail, restaurants/cafes and services dotted by green space and gum trees, all of which combine to give Were Street a lot of charm and character. Adding to the popularity, Were Street hosts many events throughout the year including the QWere Street festival, food shares, live music and children's events, making Were Street a key point for community connection.

About the project

To ensure Were Street remains a popular, accessible, safe, flexible and sustainable neighbourhood activity centre we are planning to upgrade its streetscape and we want your input.

The streetscape upgrade will include:

  • roadworks
  • footpaths
  • street furniture
  • trees
  • open space
  • public toilets

There are two key stages of the streetscape upgrade project for community input:

Stage One - Pre concept design phase

Tell us how you use Were Street, Montmorency, what you love, value about it and how we can improve the streetscape.

Stage Two - Post concept design phase

We will use your feedback to developed draft concept designs. We will then ask for feedback on the draft concept design with future streetscape upgrade construction taking place in 2021.

This project aligns with our Council Plan (2017-2021) objective 'Place’, ensuring we continue to provide you with great places and spaces.
