Public Realm Incentives
Council is developing an approach to enhancing the public realm in conjunction with major developments.
Currently, all offers to voluntarily contribute toward the cost of a public realm enhancement project are presented to Council for funding consideration on a case-by-case basis provided the proposal:
- represents a significant improvement in the quality of the public realm based on Council’s current suite of materials;
- offers a minimum of 50% co-funding toward the total cost of the project;
- extends beyond the site boundaries and forms part of the public realm; and
- is consistent with Council’s strategic objectives.
