Residents call on Brisbane City Council to support the request to upgrade the Gaythorne Shopping Precinct near the Samford Road/Pickering Street intersection. The upgrade would increase business confidence in the area and attract more consumer interest.

Your petitioners therefore request funding to improve the commercial area of Gaythorne. Some of the improvements we would like to see include new footpaths, artwork, street tree planting, garden beds and better access to the shops to encourage improved pedestrian access.

Council response

Thank you for your petition requesting that Council improve the Gaythorne shopping precinct.

Council has completed an investigation and considered your request. It was decided that the petitioners be advised of the following information.

Council has determined that a Village Precinct Project is justified for the Gaythorne shopping precinct and, therefore, the planning and design phase for this project will commence in August 2018, with project construction anticipated between January and June 2019. 

The final design for the project may include street tree planting, additional garden beds, improved pedestrian accessibility, street furniture, footpath upgrades and public art. Council will launch the project in August 2018, with a kiosk onsite to provide the local community with further opportunities for input on the project.
