Devonport Terrace Streetscape Upgrade

Council resolved to support the Devonport Terrace Streetscape Draft Concept Plans for construction in the 2020/2021 Financial Year.

You can read the Council Report and Minutes in the Key Documents section located on the right of this page.


Council has completed a Draft Concept Plan (Draft Plan) for the Devonport Terrace Streetscape. We invite you to provide feedback to assist Council to understand community support or otherwise for specific components of the Draft Plan before its finalisation and the completion of work within the current financial year.

Council has received grant funding from State and Federal Government to deliver this project.

The Draft Plan is based on feedback from a 2017 community survey and ongoing discussions with a local Community Reference Group established by Council for this project.

The scope of work includes:

  • New kerbing treatments along the Western edge of Devonport Terrace
  • Stormwater management (incorporating Water Sensitive Urban Design)
  • Landscaping (trees and shrubs)
  • Improve safety and wayfinding for pedestrians exiting train stations

You can find a copy of the Draft Plan in the Document Library at the top right of this page.
