City of Whittlesea residents and business owners are invited to shape the future of the Gorge Road shopping precinct as part of Council’s plan to revitalise the streetscape with new spaces to connect, upgraded visitor parking and improved access to local businesses.

Council is asking locals to share their ideas to improve the bustling shopping strip, located on the corner of Gorge and Plenty Roads in South Morang, to make their visits safer and more convenient.

City of Whittlesea Administrator Chris Eddy said that creating vibrant and connected communities starts with listening to what residents’ value in their local area.

“We’re eager to hear from business owners and visitors to the Gorge Road shops about how we can make the strip more inviting and improve access in and around the area,” Mr Eddy said.

“Shopping precincts are the heart of local communities. We’re planning to make improvements that create an inviting space to shop and spend time with family and friends.”

City of Whittlesea staff will also be at the Gorge Road shopping precinct on Friday 1 April, 5.30pm – 7.30pm, and Wednesday 6 April, 9.30am – 1.30pm, for residents to have their say in person and ask questions.

Construction for the streetscape improvements at Gorge Road shops is expected to start in mid-late 2022.

The South Morang Precinct Improvements project is supported by the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
