Interested in Street Gardens?

The City of Melbourne is currently undertaking a consultation process around the issue of street gardens, following interest from within the municipality.

Distinct from organised community gardens, street gardens are a way for people to use public land – like nature strips, footpaths, median strips or laneways to create small gardening spaces for food, ornamental or other green infrastructure purposes.

The City of Melbourne would like to determine the level of interest in this topic, so is inviting the community to provide feedback on both the concept of street gardens and the draft Street Gardens Guidelines.

The feedback received will be used to assist Council consider its policy position in relation to street gardens.

A copy of the draft Street Gardens Guidelines can also be downloaded at www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/getinvolved. We invite you to provide your comments by completing the online survey.

The closing date for completing the online survey is Friday 9th March, 2012.

If you would like a hard copy of the draft Street Gardens Guidelines to review contact us at health@melbourne.vic.gov.au or phone 03 9658 9658. We look forward to your involvement in this consultation.
