Have your say – Burleigh Heads Place Making Plan
The Burleigh Heads Place Making Plan (Plan) is our tool to enhance the iconic Burleigh Heads precinct and its unique lifestyle. The Plan principles are to create and enhance:
- public spaces that are safe, inclusive and equitable
- streets that balance the needs of all users
- public spaces that inspire and foster cultural life
- economic development and environmental sustainability.
These principles aim to build on the strong sense of community that already exists to create a vibrant and memorable place.
The City of Gold Coast (City) has held four workshops with community and business stakeholders to ensure the direction of the Plan reflects what matters most to them. The next stage of Plan development is a community survey to seek feedback on draft project design concepts.
Examples of future projects include: improved streets, safety, seating areas, shared pathways that integrate with revegetation of green space, shade trees and ground cover, designated bike lanes and street artwork with high visual impact.
The City has gathered research to support the Plan, such as an economic baseline study, vehicle and pedestrian movement and counts, user experience, lighting, traffic congestion, parking and accessibility of infrastructure.
Have your say at gchaveyoursay.com.au. The survey is open from 6 to 19 May, 2021.
