Hervey Bay City Centre Public Spaces & Streetscapes

Project Overview

Fraser Coast Council sought your feedback on the Vision Document for our public spaces and streetscaping for the Hervey Bay City Centre areas of Main Street and Torquay Road..

A key project within the implementation of the City Centre Master Plan, the Public Realm and Placemaking Strategy will drive vibrant subtropical streets, great city centre parks and spaces, celebrate the coastal landscape, be accessible and welcoming for everyone, attract and retain visitors to the City Centre and invest in resilience.

The Vision Document is the first major deliverable for the Public Realm and Placemaking Strategy project that sets out themes, infrastructure and activation features to provide connectivity, locational enhancement and changes to re-energise the City Centre Precinct, Streets and Public Spaces.

It builds on the City Centre master plan and public engagement work, as well site investigations and feedback from Council Departments. The feedback gathered about the Vision Document will be used to develop a detailed Hervey Bay Public Realm and Placemaking Strategy, which will provide conceptual designs for identified streets that inform future, publicly-owned infrastructure projects within the City Centre.

Hervey Bay Public Realm & Placemaking Vision adopted by Council

At its ordinary Council meeting (No 6/23), Council endorsed the vision document for the Public Realm and Placemaking for the Hervey Bay City Centre.
