The road ahead

Glenferrie Road is a high-quality retail destination, but the street is currently dominated by vehicles and its footpaths are cramped.

Making space for everyone while also achieving a net increase in car parking is central to the Place Plan. This initiative provides for around 1,500 square metres of extra public space by relocating some on-street car parking spaces to secure, off-street parking facilities within easy walking distance.

Distributing new short and long term parking options across the precinct will improve accessibility for all and transform the Glenferrie Road streetscape into a people-focused place with greenery, outdoor dining and spaces to meet and host events.
