Place making is the creation of safe, vibrant public destinations and neighbourhoods: places where people feel a strong sense of ownership in their communities and a commitment to making things better.
Who, what and why of Place making
It's about involving people, it's about places that are safe, vibrant and welcoming, it's about places that reflect community, business, cultural values and aspirations.
Council facilitates active community participation and collaboration in the process of place making and nurtures positive working relationships with stakeholders – residents, property owners, businesses, council staff and government agencies.
