Main Street Urban Design Study

Consultation has concluded

In 2016, the City of Stirling in conjuction with Village Well, prepared a Vision & Activation Strategy for the Main Street centre. In preparing the Strategy it was identified that the potential success of the centre is impeded by the poor urban design context in which the existing buildings have been developed.

The Main Street centre in Osborne Park is a cultural hub within the City consisting of a range of commercial premises, cafes, restaurants and community facilities. The poor urban design of the centre, with large setbacks to buildings dominated by parking in front, and the design of Main Street and cross streets enables traffic to speed through the centre with poor amenity for pedestrians.

Recently members of the community asked the Council to undertake an urban design study to identify how Main Street can be designed to become more people friendly. The Urban Design Study includes three rounds of consultation (Vision Workshop, Design Workshop, and Open Day). Further consultation occurs when the Council considers and advertises any changes to the City's Planning Scheme that may be required as a result of the plan developed with the community.

The community input from the survey and the Vision Workshop provided valuable information on ways to improve the Main Street precinct. A copy of the Vision Workshop community consultation report, including the workshop presentation, is available to the right of the screen or at this link.

As the second stage of the community consultation, a Design workshop was held on the 5 May 2018 to consider design options for the Main Street centre and its surrounds that have been developed from the outcomes of the Vision Workshop.

Design options were discussed at the workshop on four sections of Main Street comprising:

  1. North Beach Drive to Eldorado Street
  2. Eldorado Street to Royal Street
  3. Royal Street to Federal Street
  4. Federal Street to Cape Street.

A copy of the Design Workshop community consultation report, including the workshop presentation, is available to the right of the screen or at this link.

A Community Open Day was held on Saturday, 30 June 2018 which enabled interested members of the community to walk around and view a series of plans at their leisure. No presentations were made at this Open Day, however, City of Stirling staff were available to answer questions about the plans. Participants were able to provide feedback on the plans on the day and online following the event.

The Main Street Open Day plans are available to download in the Documents section located to the right of the page or here.
