This refers to publicly accessible streets and spaces between buildings that we pass through as pedestrians. Victoria's public realm is estimated to increase by 147%. Our priority is ensuring this new space is seamless.
In the short and medium-term, the public realm in Victoria is dominated by traffic, vehicles and pedestrian congestion. However, in the long-term term we believe that there is a great opportunity to achieve a coherent upgrade of the area’s public realm spaces.
In summer 2014 we commissioned specialist consultants Publica to look to make informed recommendations on how the roads, streets, gardens and other public spaces can be improved for all users. The result is our Public Realm Vision for Victoria, a call to action for developers, planners, architects, and local authorities to adopt 12 guiding principles for future work in Victoria .
