We're planning an upgrade of Mitchell Street, Stockton
We engaged with the local community early in this project to understand what was important and how we could improve Mitchell Street. You told us you love the community atmosphere but would like it to be enhanced with improved public spaces. The upgrade will:
- Improve access and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
- Improve visibility and traffic flow for drivers.
- Improve the look and feel of the public spaces with new paving and landscaping.
- Upgrade drainage infrastructure and improve water quality with new rain gardens.
- Improve the natural environment and increase shade cover by providing more trees and groundcover planting. The number of trees in the section of Mitchell Street being upgraded will increase from three to 40 trees – a significant boost to shade along the main street!
Thanks for having your say
Thanks to everyone who provided their opinions, ideas and colour preference for the planter boxes to be installed at various locations on Mitchell Street as part of the Upgrade.
The feedback captured in December 2020 helped to inform our design for Mitchell Street. The findings are outlined in the full engagement report and a summary is below.
We reviewed the feedback and have incorporated it into construction planning. Construction commenced at teh beginning of March 2021. The preferred colour choice for planter boxes was charcoal so we will proceed to install charcoal planter boxes.
