The West Sunshine 20 Minute Neighbourhood is all about ‘living locally’ — giving people the ability to meet most of their daily needs within a 20-minute walk from home, with access to safe cycling and local transport options.
There is colour, street greening and pop-up parks to see and enjoy at Glengala Village!
This project is part of the 20 Minute Neighbourhood program led by and funded through State Government. Council is coordinating the delivery of a number of temporary activations in Sunshine West including:
- Street greening: Replanting of existing garden beds and planters, as well as installation of new temporary planters.
- Shop front improvements: Up to 10 traders are being selected for assistance with the redesign and refreshment of their shop fronts. Some of the street furniture was also reconfigured and new bike hoops added.
- Pop up parks: In consultation with local traders, Council has added a new off-street pop up park with additional seating and shading. The outdoor dining initiative also contributed with a temporary public parklet. Now even more space to relax and enjoy a meal from your favourite local café or restaurant.
- Traffic-calming road art: A road design was installed along Glengala shopping strip. This is a tactical urbanism approach and is designed to reinvigorate the area, slow down traffic and emphasise pedestrian prioritization.
This project was funded by State Government including the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
We encourage you to come along and see the colourful and fun additions to your local shopping strip.
