Georgetown Local Centre

We are working to improve the look and feel of Georgetown Local Centre.

On 29 June 2021 the elected Council resolved to initiate a public domain upgrade for Georgetown under the Local Centres program. To find out more about the process for upgrading Local Centres view our process plan.

In 2021, we asked the local community what was most important about Georgetown Local Centre, and what could be improved. Following this input from the community, we have developed a draft Public Domain Plan.

Our upgrade will include street renewal and landscaping with a focus on creating public space for socialising and outdoor trade, with improved connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists.

The upgrades aim to:

  • Improve accessibility, safety and convenience for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Improve driver visibility and safety.
  • Make improvements to infrastructure including drainage.
  • Create more space for people by building wider footpaths and a new plaza.
  • Improve the natural environment by providing more trees and landscaping.

These upgrades will benefit both businesses and residents – delivering a safer, more attractive place to visit, that attracts customers and presents an alternative to large shopping centres.
