Endorsed by the Task Force in December 2015, the Public
Realm Framework outlines the paving materials, street furniture, street trees
and landscaping to be implemented across the CBD, including key locations for public
art. The Framework will guide all future capital works for the public realm in
A Public Realm Strategy and Standards Manual are now being
prepared, which will outline the City’s future capital works program across the
city, including specifications for construction.
In addition, a survey of the current paving materials, and
kerb and channel details has been undertaken. It will enable us to measure the impact of future streetscape upgrades.
An assessment of the current street tree coverage within the
City is also being undertaken, enabling us to measure the impact of greening
and tree planting over time.
