Kew Main Street Upgrade

Thank you for your interest in this project. The consultation has now concluded.

Kew

Council is working with the Kew community to finalise a Concept Plan for the Kew Main Street Upgrade. As one of the jewels in our village communities, Kew is a vibrant hub with a rich heritage that has renewed itself in the last decade following the Pacific Highway bypass.

An initial Kew Main Street Master Plan was developed in 2010 and focuses specifically on the intersection hub of Nancy Bird Walton Dive, Kendall Road and Ocean Drive to improve traffic management, pedestrian connectivity as well as urban amenity.

Over the last decade, a number of elements of the Main Street have been constructed and Kew has transformed from a highway stop to an attractive township. In 2018, a $134,000 works project was developed, guided by community drop-in sessions as well as meetings with the Kew Business Group and feedback received from the broader community. The focus of this project was on high priority works that could be constructed at relatively low cost with minimal design required. New kerbing, planting of gardens/trees, improvements to existing pedestrian refuges, directional signs and extension of central medians were realised.

Thanks to the Building Better Regions Fund by the Federal Government, in February 2019 Council secured grant funding of $800,000 towards a $1.6-million upgrade and beautification plan.

Following this funding announcement and based on previous feedback from the community, Council has developed a Draft Concept Plan which will form the basis of detailed designs for the Main Street Upgrade.

This draft Concept Plan was presented at a community meeting which was held on Wednesday 25 September. The presentation and the draft Concept Plan can both be downloaded from the Document Library (to the right).

Key dates for this next phase of the Kew Main Street Upgrade can also be seen to the right.

Share your thoughts on the Draft Concept Plan

Council is now seeking feedback on the Draft Concept Plan from the broader community before finalising and proceeding to detailed design in November.

Due to funding constraints, not all elements of the Concept Plan can delivered in the next phase of the Main Street Upgrade. In addition to general feedback on the draft Concept Plan we are also seeking the community’s feedback on the priorities for this next phase of works.
