More improvements for the Paddington Terraces Village Precinct Project (Paddington Terraces VPP) are in the works after an additional $250,000 commitment from the Council. In line with this project to create a more liveable neighbourhood, residents are encouraged to share their feedback on this public space through an online survey prepared by the Brisbane City Council.
The survey, which takes just five minutes to answer, will remain open online until Friday, 9 April 2021. Locals may also give their inputs on how to make the new village precinct distinct, inviting and useful for all the residents and visitors by phoning Council at 07 3403 8888 or emailing the project team at VPP@brisbane.qld.gov.au for comments and suggestions.
In 2020, the revitalisation paved the way for the opening of The Terraces Night Markets at Given and Latrobe Terraces from Castlemaine Street to Collingwood Street. This initiative delivered the following key features:
- warm-white energy-efficient LED bud lighting to street trees along Given and Latrobe terraces
- creative murals to three building facades celebrating the centre’s history and character
- gobo artwork projections by local gallery artists onto the landmark heritage Paddington Antique Centre and Paddington Substation building facades
- illuminated ‘Welcome to the Terraces’ character signage with heritage trail map providing a warm gateway into the neighbourhood centre
After this latest community engagement, Council will study the feedback and deliver the opportunities proposal in the form of posters around Paddington Terraces. Ideas for improvements usually centre on the Paddington’s character, heritage, artisan and boutique stores and local village community vibe.
Council will also prepare for the installation and construction of the next phase of improvements, which is scheduled to begin in late 2021.
If the project goes without any hitches, Paddington Terraces VPP will be ready for the locals to enjoy by the end of 2021.
