Streetscape Guide

Consultation has concluded

Streetscapes provide a valuable contribution to the character and amenity of a place. The City of Burnside Streetscape Guide has been developed to provide guidelines for streetscape development throughout the City.

Streetscapes

Streets are increasingly seen as more than just a transport route dominated by cars. Instead, streets are becoming destinations in their own right for commercial activity and social interaction.

High quality streetscapes offer a range of benefits to residents and other users, including increased safety, an improved balance between natural ecosystems and built environments, improved mental and physical health for residents and visitors, spaces for passive and active recreation, places for neighbours to interact, increased civic pride, economic growth and increased property values.

Streetscape Guide

The City of Burnside’s Streetscape Guide has been developed to provide a clear vision for what the community can expect from the City’s public spaces when a street, or elements within a street, are to be redeveloped or updated, by outlining the materials and elements to be used. The selection range takes into account heritage aspects, the general aesthetics of the precincts within the City, as well as environmentally, socially and financially sustainable practices. With the use of the completed Guide, the City of Burnside’s streetscapes will be engaging, functional and cohesive, using fit-for-purpose and cost-effective infrastructure.

The Guide works alongside other City of Burnside policies and strategies, in particular the Urban Tree Strategy 2014-2025, which highlights measures to protect the City's tree canopy cover.
