TOUR 6: Creating Better Parks and Streets: Blue/Green Infrastructure Transforming Liveability

Departing from 10AM

Brimbank City Council has been transforming the public realm since 2008 with the initial focus on creating quality public places. Key strategies, partnerships and integrated design have enabled significant Federal, State and Local Government funding to create a liveable and sustainable public realm. Through this transformation, green and blue infrastructure have become crucial components that seek to green and cool public infrastructure and places with the aim to mitigate heatwaves. The value and role of these components has been reconsidered.  This tour will visit parks, a concrete drain being naturalised and some streets that show case private/public partnerships, blue/green infrastructure and external funding that are all contributing to the redesign of public spaces in Brimbank.

Host agency: Brimbank City Council
